Water Baptism

We believe in water baptism in the Name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins.  We believe the scriptural method of baptism, which is by complete immersion (to be taken under) is in water and administered in the name of Jesus Christ by a duly authorized minister of the gospel (Acts 2:38, 8:16, 10:48, 19:5).  This is the recorded method of the Apostles which obey and fulfill the command of Jesus in Matthew 28:19.  Baptism is only for those who have fully repented and consciously turned from their sins.  It is an essential part of the New Birth/Born Again experience emphasized by Jesus in Matthew 3:13-17 and John 3:5-7.
