At Evangel, we practice water baptism by immersion in water. We do this, first, to follow the example of Jesus who was also baptized. Second, we participate in water baptism because Christ commands it in scripture. Third, water baptism illustrates Christ's death and resurrection as well as our commitment as a follower of Christ. We practice water baptism by immersion, because Jesus was baptized that way and because every baptism we see in the Bible was by immersion. After the decision to follow Christ is made, we believe you should be baptized as soon as possible.
To see what the Bible says about water baptism, take a look at the following scriptures:
Water baptism happens on once a month on Sunday mornings in our 10:30am service. If you interested in water baptism, you will meet with one of our Pastors to walk through the baptismal process. At that time, the Pastor can answer any questions you may have about baptism. When you are baptized, you will have a chance to share your story of how you began to follow Christ.
