Baptism Is Here Again! Come Join us!

In the days of the early church, hundreds and thousands of people gave their lives to Christ daily. New Believers (often immediately and spontaneously) were then baptized as a symbol of their commitment and new life in Christ.

At High Pointe, we see baptism exactly the same -- an outward expression of an inward commitment. When a believer is immersed, we see a powerful illustration of the death and burial of Jesus Christ and our decision to die to our old life. Rising up out of the water, the resurrection power of Jesus Christ to overcome sin and death is demonstrated as the celebration of new life in Christ begins!

 

In a similar way a wedding ring illustrates publicly our commitment to our spouse in marriage, baptism illustrates publicly that we have made a personal decision to follow Christ.

 

As you consider being baptized, you may have some important questions. While not every question may be answered in these pages, those most commonly asked will be addressed and answered from God's Word. We encourage you to take time to read and prayerfully consider the provided passages from the Bible. If you do not own a Bible and would like one, please visit our Welcome Center and we will be happy to provide you with one!

 

In the space below, write five or six sentences describing your spiritual journey and why you want to be baptized. Try to address the following:
1. What was life like before you accepted God's grace? What were you "worshiping"?
2. How/When did you come to the place where you decided to ask Jesus to be your Savior?
3. Why would you like to be baptized?
