Once we have put our faith in Jesus, baptism is the way in which we show that we now belong to and want to follow Him. As you are physically submerged in water, what you are essentially doing is saying goodbye to your old way of life and as you rise out of the water you are being raised into your new life in Him.
The act of baptism makes your commitment clear, it is a symbolic sign of being cleansed of your sin and your old life, and it marks a new beginning.
Why is baptism important?
- Because Jesus was baptised himself and wants us to be baptised and baptise others.
- Because you’ve decided to follow Jesus and you want people to know.
- Because baptism is a powerful symbol of what Jesus did for us.
We at C3 Church Hobart are looking forward to celebrating this with you. If you have not yet been baptised as an adult, sign up below and we'll be in touch!
