Through baptism, people become new. They show that they are reborn. Sin has no hold of them, for all is new through the Lord. If you’re thinking about getting baptized, there is a Church in Lawrence that can help you and bring you closer to the creator. So take this new step and let the Lord make you new.
What is Baptism?
Baptism represents the death and resurrection of sin to a new life in Jesus Christ. We die to our old lifestyle and become new creatures. However, dying to the past lifestyle means sins are put in a spiritual tomb, and God forgets those sins. You begin a new life in Christ.
Steps To Baptism
Baptism is a matter of decision. It is a process that takes steps into finally deciding to get a clean slate and becoming a new person through Jesus Christ. First, you have to hear, believe, repent, declare, and then be baptized.
The first step to baptism is to hear the word of the Lord. Romans 10:17 says that through hearing, comes faith and by hearing comes the word of the Lord. If you’re familiar with the word or have heard of it throughout your life, you’re a step closer to him.
The second step of baptism is believing in the Lord. Once you’ve declared with your mouth that Jesus is the Lord and believed from the bottom of your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
After you’ve heard and believed the word, then comes repenting. Repent gives you the forgiveness of the Lord. Once you’ve repented, Jesus forgives all previous sins and gives you the beautiful gift that the Holy Spirit is.
The final decision you have to make is declaring him. Once you have declared with your mouth and truly believed that Jesus is the Lord, you will be saved.
Last but not least, baptism. Through the waters of baptism, you are new. Jesus Christ forgives you and forsakes you. Now you can proclaim it to the world.
