celebrating new life 

Baptism is an important step for all those that wish to follow Jesus. At Berean, you will see us regularly incorporate baptisms into our worship services. Why is baptism so important? Here are three reasons:

  • To follow the example set by Jesus Christ - "At that time Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan."  Mark 1:9
  • Because Christ commanded it  - "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.  And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." Matthew 28:19-20 
  • It is a public profession of faith - "...many of the people who heard Him believed and were baptized." Acts 18:8  "We know that we have come to know Him, if we obey His commands." I John 2:3 

If you are ready to take this next step of obedience in your relationship with Jesus, register for an upcoming baptism class, a one hour session to help you prepare for your baptism.
