WHAT IS BAPTISM?
The Bible clearly teaches that baptism is the first step of obedience after making a commitment to Christ. Baptism allows a believer to communicate to the world their heart-felt commitment to Christ. Baptism doesn’t make you a Christian; only your faith in Christ does that. Baptism is like a wedding ring – it’s the outward sign of the commitment you have made in your heart.
Because Jesus was baptized that way (Matthew 3:16)
a. Every baptism in the Bible was by immersion (for example: Acts 8:38-39).
b. The word “baptize” means “to dip under water.”
c. It best symbolized a burial and resurrection (see Romans 6:1-11).
WHAT ABOUT CHILDREN?
The New Testament shows no example of baptism when the person did not request it. All instances of baptism followed an individual’s decision to trust Christ alone for their salvation (Acts 2:41; 8:12; 10:47-48). At Summit Heights Fellowship, we wait until the child is old enough to believe and understand the true meaning of baptism before we baptize them.
