WHAT IS BAPTISM?
Baptism confuses a lot of people, and understandably so. It’s not easy to understand the significance of being immersed in water after becoming a Christian. At Compass, we believe that when you make the decision to commit your life to Jesus Christ, the Bible teaches that baptism is your next step, following Jesus’ example.
THREE POINTS ON BAPTISM
In its simplest form, we think baptisms means three things. 1) We have turned from our old life of sin to our new life with Christ. 2) We are identifying with the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus. 3) We are openly joining others who believe in Christ. Because of these things, we think baptisms are worthing celebrating!
