Believer's Baptism

Get up and be baptized. Have your sins washed away...

Water baptism identifies a person as a disciple of Christ and celebrates the passage from an old life into a new life in Christ. Simply stated, it is an outward sign of an inward change.

Please watch or listen to the message on baptism "Water Grave from Dr. Brad Stephenson.

Please take some time to go through the Meeting God Bible and complete the baptism application below. You will hear back from one of the pastors to set up a time to go over the Meeting God Bible Stud. Please be sure to have that Bible study completed and filled to be ready for that meeting.

What Does Baptism Mean?

Immersion in the baptismal waters symbolizes the end of the old way of life. Coming up out of the baptismal waters pictures the new life found in Christ. The person who was previously dead in sin has been made spiritually alive by the same power that raised up Jesus from the grave. United with Him, the believer is released from the power of sin in order to obey God. Paul portrays this life change as putting on new clothes: “for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ” (Galatians 3:27).

Practical Advice

Though the Bible does not state a minimum age at which a person may be baptized, a believer should be old enough to understand the significance of baptism. Baptism is not required to receive God’s salvation. However, The Alliance encourages all who have trusted in Christ for eternal life to be baptized as a step of obedience.

Those who were baptized as believers before affiliating with an Alliance church do not need to be rebaptized.

In cases where immersion is impossible due to physical limitations, an alternate mode is acceptable.
