Baptism

I believe

The most important part of baptism is not being immersed under the water.

The most important aspect of baptism is having invited Jesus into your heart as your friend, Lord and Savior.

We Believe

We believe that inviting Jesus into your heart involves:

  1. Recognizing that God loves you — John 3:16
  2. Admitting that sin exists in your life — Romans 3:23, Romans 6:23, John 14:6
  3. Repenting of past sins — Luke 13:3, Acts 2:38
  4. Accepting Jesus as Lord and as Savior — Romans 10:9, John 3:17, Luke 19:10
  5. Celebrating the great news that as a member of God’s family God wants you to experience His blessings and wants you to have a special, wonderful, and eternal relationship with Him — Galatians 5:22-23, Romans 8:1, Romans 2, Romans 28, James 1:2-4

Why get baptized?

Baptism is not salvation. It is identification with the Savior. A person is not saved by baptism; they are saved by faith in Christ. Even though we are not saved by baptism, we are still commanded in scripture to be baptized: “…Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ…” (Acts 2:38) and: “Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved…” (Mark 16:16). Baptism is an act of obedience and submission to Jesus Christ, the Lord of your life.

When should you get baptized?

A person should be baptized after they have been born again through repentance and faith in Christ trusting Him completely in His death, burial, and resurrection for salvation. Rarely does this happen before six years of age and can happen at any point in life from then on. All Christians should be baptized.

What is baptism?

Baptism is a physical demonstration of the spiritual reality of making Jesus Lord of your life. When a person is immersed in water, they are identifying with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection. Baptism is the symbol of new life, washing away sins, and identification with Jesus. Jesus told his disciples to baptize everyone who comes into faith in Him: “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” (Matthew 28:19).

How do we baptize?

At Crossroads we practice full immersion baptism. The word “baptism” literally means “the process of submersion.” Immersion symbolizes the death burial and resurrection of Christ literally and in a believer’s life spiritually.

What about baby/child baptism?

At Crossroads Church we dedicate babies to the Lord based on the commitment of parents to raise their child in a Christian home and manner. When a person can comprehend faith in Christ, forgiveness of sin, and symbolism, then they can be baptized, but not before. If you’ve been baptized as an infant, great! However, Biblical baptism is the public immersion of a believer.
