Our next Baptism Weekend is April 29+30, 2023.
WHAT IS BAPTISM?
Baptism is part of a believer’s journey to becoming more like Jesus. It is not essential to salvation, but it is an outward act of commitment to show what already happened in your heart—much like putting on a wedding ring is a symbol of your commitment to marriage. We believe that baptism is an important step of obedience for every person who has accepted Christ as his or her Savior.
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” | Matthew 28:19-20
Baptism is a public declaration of an inward faith. It is a personal declaration that we choose to identify with Jesus.
At Mission Hills we practice immersion baptism. The act of being baptized—going under the water and then reemerging—symbolizes Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection into new life. When we declare faith in Jesus, we put our old life of sin to death and we are raised to new life in Christ.
