What is Baptism?

The First Step of Obedience

We believe the Bible clearly teaches us that baptism is the first step of obedience after making a commitment to Christ. Baptism allows a Christ-follower to communicate to the world their heart-felt commitment to Christ. In Scripture, we see that people were:

1. Baptized after they made a decision to follow Christ and

2. Baptized by immersion to symbolize the death, burial and resurrection of Christ. We follow this pattern at River of Life and would be happy to answer any questions you have about baptism.

Water baptisms are scheduled regularly. Be watching for announcements in the bulletin and other venues to see when the next baptism is or you can inquire more information by calling 765-271-2172.
