Have you been baptized by immersion?
Time and again in the Bible when people professed their faith in Jesus Christ as their Savior, they were immediately baptized (see Acts 2:41; 8:35-38; 16:29-33). We want to encourage you to do the same.
To follow Christ in believer’s baptism:
• Speak with a TSC Staff member or Prayer Partner on Sunday
• Contact Jennifer Arrington @ 615-791-8319 or
• Schedule your baptism
After you commit your life to Jesus, this is the next important step on your spiritual journey. Baptism is a powerful experience that expresses to the world that you are modeling your life after Christ.
Why should I be baptized?
"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matt 28/19-20
It is a symbol that I believe in Jesus Christ as my Savior.
Those who accepted his message were baptized, and about three thousand were added to their number that day. Acts 2:41
What is the meaning of baptism?
It illustrates Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection having been buried with him in baptism, in which you were also raised with him through your faith in the working of God, who raised him from the dead. Colossians 2:12
It illustrates my new life as a Christian. "We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life. Romans 6:4
Baptism does not make you a believer, it symbolizes that you already believe. It’s important to understand that baptism does not “save” you. "You are “saved” by your faith in Jesus. Saving is all his idea, and all his work. All we do is trust him enough to let him do it. It’s God’s gift from start to finish!
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith- and this is not from yourselves, it is a gift from God so that no man can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9
Baptism is like a wedding ring- it’s the outward symbol of the commitment you make in your heart.
Who should be baptized?
Every person who has believed in Christ. "But when they believed Phillip as he proclaimed the good news of the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women. Acts 8:12
It’s important to know if you were baptized as a baby, it is not the same thing as experiencing a biblical believer’s baptism. As seen in the verses above, this act of immersion occurs after you commit your life to Christ in salvation.
Many parents have their children baptized as a sign of dedication to God. Many churches have a dedication service for infants and children that emphasizes the parent’s role in raising a child to follow Christ. While such ceremonies certainly have meaning for the parents, the Bible clearly teaches that any person who receives Christ by faith should then follow that commitment by being baptized.
