Water Baptism is a biblical ordinance given to the believer by our Lord Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:18). It is symbolic of the believer's union with Christ in his death, burial, and resurrection (Rom 6:3-6; 1 Pet 3:21-22). It represents that one has died to sin and self, and now lives a new life in Christ Jesus.

What to Expect
The word "baptism" comes from the Greek word "baptizo" which means to plunge into, submerge, to sink, thrust under, immerse, or soak. You will be completely submerged into a pool of water, and pronounced baptized in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (Matt 28:18)
