We believe that believer’s baptism was commanded by Jesus. Those who have faith in Christ ought to be baptized which symbolizes their death, burial, and resurrection with Christ. This act symbolizes God’s clearing of the believer’s guilty conscience and the new life of the believer which has been surrendered to God. Scripture: Acts 2:37, 38, 41; Matthew 28:19, 20; Romans 6:3-5; I Peter 3:21; Romans 6:1-14
In Christian baptism, there are two requirements before a person is baptized: 1) the person being baptized must have trusted in Jesus Christ as Savior, and 2) the person must understand what baptism signifies. If a person knows the Lord Jesus as Savior, understands that Christian baptism is a step of obedience in publicly proclaiming his faith in Christ, and desires to be baptized, then there is no reason to prevent the believer from being baptized. According to the Bible, Christian baptism is important because it is a step of obedience—publicly declaring faith in Christ and commitment to Him—an identification with Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection.
