Baptism is your next step after surrendering your life to Jesus and receiving Salvation through Jesus Christ. At Element Church we believe that the Bible clearly teaches that baptism is a vital part of your decision to follow Jesus.
WHY SHOULD I GET BAPTIZED?
1. TO FOLLOW THE EXAMPLE OF JESUS:
“One day Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee, and John baptized him in the Jordan River.”
-Mark 1:9 – NLT
2. BECAUSE JESUS COMMANDS IT:
Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
-Matthew 28:19-20 – NLT
3. BECAUSE IT DEMONSTRATES I AM A FOLLOWER OF CHRIST:
“And we can be sure that we know him if we obey his commandments.”
-1 John 2:3 – NLT
