Baptism is not an option. Jesus made it very clear that every person who claims to be a follower of Him demonstrates that through being baptized.
Jesus said one of the ways we demonstrate our love for Him is doing the things he commanded. Baptism is one of those things.
The way I get baptized, by immersion, pictures Christ's death, burial, and resurrection. In addition to sharing my story verbally, I share my story visually-- the physical act of immersion is a picture that I was once dead in sin, but I have been raised to newness of life and am now alive to Christ. Baptism shows people outwardly what I have embraced in my life personally.
Though we do not have an age requirement for baptism we graciously ask for anyone 10 years (5th grade) or younger to come into the office with their parents or guardians and meet with a pastor prior to the next baptism service. Please schedule that through our office.
If you would like to get baptized or would like to schedule a time to meet with a pastor about baptism, please email Kristie Cook: Kristie@harvestspringlake.org
