Salvation is a gift from God to man. The most important spiritual step a person can take is to turn from their sins and commit their life to Jesus Christ. It’s sometimes called being “saved” or “born again”. Man can never make up for his sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can man be saved from sin’s penalty. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.
As a follower of Jesus, baptism is a public statement that your faith and commitment to Him is real. We are not called to live our lives alone, but to find a growing community to share life and experience with. Through baptism, we are asking our family of faith to walk with us in a way that brings Glory to God.
Baptism of Holy Spirit
Baptism of the Holy Spirit or Spirit baptism is distinguished from baptism with water.
Luke 3:3 ESV | he went into all the region around the Jordan, proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins.
Luke 3:16 ESV | John answered them all, saying, “I baptize you with water, but he who is mightier than I is coming, the strap of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.
