According to God’s Word, the first important step after we put faith in Christ is Baptism! At Starting Point, Baptism is part of our Sunday Services. Call the church office for setting up a date to be baptized.
The Importance of Being Baptized
- It Is A Public Testimony That You Are A Follower of Christ and His Teaching.
- It Symbolizes Spiritual Cleansing.
- It Pictures the True Meaning of Salvation.
Note: The word “baptize” means “to immerse or dip under water.” Water baptism by immersion is a public display of obedience in following Christ’s example for His baptism (Matthew 3:16). Baptism does not make you a believer - it shows that you already believe. Baptism does not “save” you - only your faith in Christ does that. Baptism is like a wedding ring - it’s the outward symbol of the commitment that you have made in your heart.
“For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.” Ephesians 2:8-9
