Baptism

Baptism

When Christians are baptized, they are submerged under water to identify with the death and burial of Jesus and raised out of the water to identify with His resurrection. We believe that water baptism is a public declaration of three important things: you are a follower of Jesus Christ, you are beginning a changed life in Christ, and you are part of a new family.

We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.

Romans 6:4

If you are a believer in Christ and have never been baptized we encourage you to consider it. However, being baptized is not a requirement for salvation or for church membership.

As part of the baptism process at Whitneyville Bible Church, you will meet with an elder to talk about baptism and what it means and to share your story of coming to faith.

If you would like to be baptized please complete this form and a staff member will follow up with you or call the church office at 616-891-8661.
