BAPTIZING THEM IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER AND OF THE SON AND OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”the age.”
Baptism by immersion for believers is one of our key distinctions. We do it because we believe that it is a basic step of Christian discipleship and that the command of Christ to us is “repent and be baptized”
We do it as an act of obedience to Christ. We follow his example, we surrender to his Lordship over all of our lives and in Baptism we publicly declare we are his and want to be a disciple of Christ.
