Baptism is a huge step of faith and a great way to tell the world that you follow Jesus.
Baptisms are generally scheduled on our Friends & Family Days.
Here are some answers to common questions.
Baptism is an outward expression of an inward commitment made to Christ. Baptism does not make you a believer – it shows that you already believe. Baptism does not “save” you, only your faith in Christ does.
Jesus instructs us to be baptized and set the example by being baptized (Matthew 28:19-20, Mark 1:9).
Obedience to Jesus shows we believe and follow Him. (1 John 2:3). Because Jesus went public about His love for us, we can go public about our love for Him. Being baptized shows that we turn away from a life of sin toward Jesus, the only one who can change us (Acts 2:38-41).
After you give your life to Christ. As soon as you have given your life to Christ and have received Him as your Savior, you can and should be baptized. If you wait until you’re “perfect,” you’ll never feel “good enough”. Jesus asks you to follow Him in baptism now.
At Legacy Church we wait until children are old enough to express their own decision to follow Jesus and understand the meaning of baptism. We can help point our children to Jesus, but they are the ones to decide if they will commit their lives to Him ( Romans 10:9).
The question we would encourage you to ask yourself is, “Did I truly trust Christ as my Lord and Savior at the time of my baptism?”. If your answer to this question is “yes”, then we see no need to repeat the ordinance. However, if you were too young to remember, or if you were baptized for reasons beyond your understanding, we encourage you to move forward with a believer’s baptism.
