I have accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Savior and I would like to be baptized…
WHAT DO I DO NEXT?
What is baptism?
Baptism is an outward expression of an inward spiritual renewal. It’s a public declaration of how Jesus changed your life. Being baptized shows others that you’ve decided to follow Jesus, and allows them to celebrate this decision with you (Acts 16:31-34).
Baptism doesn’t save a person; it’s a symbol and celebration of salvation (1 Peter 3:21). The power that brought Jesus back to life is the same power Jesus uses to change our lives.
Why should I be baptized?
Jesus instructs us to be baptized and set the example. (Matthew 28:19-20, Mark 1:9) Being baptized shows that we turn away from a life of sin toward one with Jesus, the only one who can change us. (Acts 2:38-41)
Who is eligible to be baptized?
Those who decide to follow Jesus. If you haven’t made that commitment to know Jesus as your personal Savior, you can pray this prayer right now, wherever you are:
“Dear Lord Jesus, I admit that I’ve fallen short. I’ve sinned and need your forgiveness. I believe and understand that You lived, died and rose again so that I could be connected to God. I give you my past, present and future. I receive this gift by trusting You alone as my only way to heaven. I give my life to you.”
