The Bible teaches that baptism is the first step of obedience after making a commitment to Jesus. Baptism allows a believer to communicate to the world that they are a follower of Jesus. At Life Community Church, we encourage believers to be baptized in water.
We do this because:
- Jesus, as the Son of God, set a great example for us to follow when he was personally baptized (Matthew 3:16)
- Jesus commanded us to be baptized (Matthew 28:19)
- Water baptism symbolizes the brand new life that Jesus gives (Romans 6:4)
