Baptism @ Newburgh
If no dates are listed, you can still sign up and we will let you know when we are doing baptisms.
WHAT IS BAPTISM: Although some might not think of a party when they think about baptism, it’s cause for celebration. Baptism is the next step after an attender has made the decision to follow Christ. Here at Grace, we encourage people to understand the significance of baptism and to share the joy with friends and family.
LOCATION: During worship in each service on the weekend.
WHAT IS THE PROCESS: Someone from our Next Steps team will touch base with you during the week of baptism. They will explain the process and answer any questions you may have.
What does it mean to follow Christ?
“Your life is no longer your own. You exist for the glory of God.”
We are all born with a sin nature. Because of our sin, we are unable to have a relationship with God without forgiveness.
For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard.
– Romans 3:23 NLT
We can’t earn God’s forgiveness – it must be given. Jesus gave His life as a sacrifice so that we could be forgiven.
But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.
– Romans 5:8 NLT
For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.
– Romans 6:23 NLT
We must accept this free gift from God by committing our lives and heart to Jesus.
If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
– Romans 10:9 NLT
A Symbol of Your Faith
Baptism shows others that you have been made new. It represents your old sinful life being washed clean because of your faith in Jesus.
For we died and were buried with Christ by baptism. And just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious power of the Father, now we also may live new lives.
– Romans 6:4 NLT
