Baptism

What Baptism is & is not

Baptism is a symbol – an outward expression of an inward decision. Baptism is not a sacrament, the new birth, and does not wash away our sins. It does not save us nor does it earn us grace to get into heaven (Eph. 2:8-9; Titus 3:5; John 3:3-5; I Pet. 1:23; John 14:6; I Cor. 1:14-18; I john 1:7).

How should I be baptized?

The Greek word “baptize” literally means “to immerse”. The Bible clearly teaches that you should be baptized by immersion. Baptism by immersion correctly pictures the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

When should I be baptized?

Baptism always takes place after salvation. Anyone who is truly saved should be baptized.

Reach Out

Contact one of the pastors at WRBC & we will schedule you for baptism.

Testimony

Write out & prepare to share your testimony of salvation with the pastor and the church. A testimony answers 3 questions…

  1. What did I used to be like before I trusted Jesus?
  2. When & where did I trust Jesus?
  3. How has my life changed since I trusted Jesus?
