Baptism is a glorious picture of our union with Jesus in his death and resurrection. Romans 6:3–4 says that “all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death … We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life.
Baptism does not save us, but as a sign it pictures our salvation. This salvation is a rescue from the reign of sin and death not only in the removal of the penalty of sin, but also a life of sin. This is why Paul says, we were raised to "walk in newness of life."
If you have questions about baptism please contant Pastor Trent through the church office. We'll assign some reading and schedule a time to visit.
