Baptism is an outward expression of an inward change. It's a public declaration of how Jesus has 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 - They replied, "Believe in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved, along with everyone in your household." And they shared the word of the Lord with him and with all who lived in his household. Even at that hour of the night, the jailer cared for them and washed their wounds. Then he and everyone in his household were immediately baptized. He brought them into his house and set a meal before them, and he and his entire household rejoiced because they all believed in God.
What a powerful moment that followed when the jailer made an inward change to believe. That was a moment of baptism, where in front of all his family he declares he is a believer and his family joins in the celebration and become believers as well.
If you've come to know Jesus as Lord and Savior you should really consider the next step of water baptism. It is a powerful and liberating experience not just for yourself but those who are close to you.
If you would like to get water baptized come join us on April 28, 2019 at Journey City Church. Our service time is 10:30 a.m. Bring a change of clothes and a towel. It will be an exciting time.
