Water Baptism - Sunday, July 1st - 10am - ONE SERVICE ONLY

July 1st, 2018

Water Baptism - B'ville Campus 10am Service
What is Water Baptism?
It is the practice of immersing a professing believer in Jesus fully into water and then raising them back out. Essentially, baptism is a rite of identification.
The word “Baptism” literally means to be immersed. Covered. Buried. It was a term used in the first century for immersing a garment first into bleach and then into dye, both cleansing and changing the color of the cloth. (Note its similarity to baptism's cleansing of sin and becoming a new person through Christ.)
Baptism is a public testimony of our identification with the Lord Jesus as a follower of His. It is a picture representing a profound spiritual truth - that we have received forgiveness, repented and been cleansed of sin. Baptism itself has no power to cleanse or save from sin. It represents an outward symbol to go with the inward change that has already occurred.
Romans 6:4 - For we died and were buried with Christ by baptism. And just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious power of the Father, now we also may live new lives.
