Sign Up For Baptism
At NorthRock Church we urge everyone to take this public step of identifying with Christ and with other followers of Christ. We feel it is an important and very public way we say to everyone, “I know I have become a new person in Christ; my identity is now in Christ Jesus.” Baptism means immersion, because it’s what the church in Acts did. It demonstrates what has happened in your new birth: death, burial, and resurrection. It says we are saturated through and through with God. In Acts they first trusted Christ, then were baptized. Baptism doesn’t save us, but shouts out in a public way that we have decided to follow Christ.
Some other real good reasons for you to be baptized:
You are expressing your faith in a visible way, showing that you really believe you are alive in Christ’s new life.
To settle it for yourself and everyone else—a bench mark you can use to say, “I have made my commitment to follow Christ with no exceptions.”
A statement to the world, all who know you and your those you may have associated with in unhealthy practices (sin). It is now easier to make the break.
