Being baptized in Jesus’ name shows your identification with Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection (Acts 2:38; Romans 6:3-8; Colossians 2:12; 1 Peter 3:21). In baptism, you as a believer are publicly testifying that when Christ died on the cross for your sins, you died to your former life of sin against God. But as Christ was raised from the dead, so you were also raised to eternal life in relationship with him. Baptism is thus a public declaration and picture of the salvation found in Christ.
We are excited to be hosting baptisms on Easter! In line with previous baptisms, we’ll be incorporating them into the Easter gatherings.
In preparation for baptisms, we are also offering a baptism class. Though it is not mandatory, we encourage everyone getting baptized to attend in order to gain a greater biblical understanding of baptism.
The class will take place Sunday, March 25, at 2:30PM in the Helen Bernstein High School library.
