About Baptism
 
Baptism is an important step of obedience that shows others we have personally trusted Jesus for our salvation.  Jesus was baptized when He was on the earth, and we do this to follow His example.  When Christians are baptized, they submerged under water to identify with the death and burial of Jesus and raised out of the water to identify with His resurrection.
 
We believe that water baptism is a public declaration of three important things: you are a follower of Jesus Christ, you are beginning a changed life in Christ, and you are part of a new family.

Some Q and A’s about Baptism
 
 
Why Baptism?
 
Those who are baptized are following Jesus’ example and following His command.
 
 “After his baptism, as Jesus came up out of the water, the heavens were opened[a] and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and settling on him. And a voice from heaven said, ‘This is my dearly loved Son, who brings me great joy.”                    
– Matthew 3:16,17
 

“Jesus came and told his disciples, ‘I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.”      – Matthew 28:18,19

What is the significance of Baptism?
 
For we died and were buried with Christ by baptism. And just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious power of the Father, now we also may live new lives.”                                 _ Romans 6:4
 
 “Those who believed what Peter said were baptized and added to the church that day—about 3,000 in all.”                                                   – Acts 2:41 
 
“For you are all children of God through faith in Christ Jesus. And all who have been united with Christ in baptism have put on Christ, like putting on new clothes.”
       – Galatians 3:26-27
 
I have already been water baptized. Should I be baptized again?
 
Your baptism should have signified you becoming a follower of Jesus, beginning a changed life, and united with the family of God.  If your baptism did not reflect this change in your life, you should consider being baptized again.
 
Can my child be baptized?
 

We will baptize anyone who understands what baptism symbolizes and wants to make that personal public declaration.  Parents are encouraged to partner with our Highpoint Kids ministry to help guide your children through these decisions of faith.
