as one of two ordinances of our church family. The other is Communion or the Lord’s Supper. Our mode or method of Baptism is by immersion. We believe Baptism is an act of obedience symbolizing the believer’s faith in a crucified, buried, and risen Savior, the believer’s death to sin, the burial of the old life, and the resurrection to walk in newness of life in Jesus Christ. Being a church ordinance, it is prerequisite to the privileges of church membership and to the Lord’s Supper.
