Baptism isn’t required for salvation but is the first step of faith for believers. Baptism is a picture of the work that Jesus has done in a person’s heart.
Baptism illustrates Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection (1 Corinthians 15:3-4). It shows our new life as a follower of Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17). Baptism doesn’t make you a believer… it shows that you already believe. Baptism doesn’t save you; Jesus does! Simply put, baptism is an outward expression of the inward life transformation that has happened.
At Kamloops Alliance, we baptize by immersion. That’s the example we see throughout Scripture and is the basis for the meaning of the word “baptize,” which means to immerse (or dip under) in water.
If you’re a believer, you should be baptized! It doesn’t matter if you were saved 20 years ago or just last week… it’s time to take the next step in your faith journey.
