Jesus didn’t make things complicated, so we believe in keeping things simple, too.
Mark 1:17 “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will make you fishers of men”
When Jesus said, “Follow me,” he meant: “Come love people like I do, do the things I do, be my follower.” Here are a few things that becoming a Christ follower means:
Baptism is a public identification with Jesus and is a visible expression of our trust in Him.
It communicates many great pictures…
Everyone who believes in Christ as Savior. A believer is someone who realizes their sin has separated them from God. They have given up all efforts to reach God through good works or religious activity. They have decided that Jesus’ death on the cross for their sin is the only thing that can bridge the gap back to God. A believer is someone who has decided to trust God alone for salvation and life.
As soon as you have placed your faith and trust in Jesus. Baptism is a step of obedience to declare your allegiance to Jesus. There is no need to wait.
The Bible consistently gives examples of people who were baptized following a conscious decision to follow and trust in Jesus. In addition, we do not find any examples of people being baptized who did not ask for that to happen. At Lifepointe, we believe that people who are baptized should be old enough to verbalize their faith in Jesus and have a basic understanding of what baptism means.
Lifepointe will provide a t-shirt to wear. (This is for you to keep — our gift to you.) Most men wear a bathing suit or dark shorts and women wear dark shorts over a bathing suit.
