Proclaim Your Faith With a Water Baptism
We are excited that you have chosen to be baptized through Healing Place Church. It is important for us to express what we believe about this important milestone in a person’s faith. Water baptism is an act of faith and it unleashes the strength of the Holy Spirit in your life.
The Spiritual Renewal of the Baptism
As followers of Christ, baptism is an important aspect of committing to God. It is a renewal of life in Christ, as well as an outward expression of your commitment to Him.
In the Gospels, the baptism of Jesus brings forth the opening up of the heavens. He looks for John and seeks to be baptized in water. John himself admits that he is not worthy of baptising Jesus in water, but he does so. As Jesus comes out of the water, the heavens open up and the Holy Spirit emerges embodied by a dove. A voice from the heavens proclaimed that Jesus was his son. “As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment, heaven was opened and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him, I am well pleased.” (Matthew 3:3-17)
The Effects of Baptism
Baptism is a renewal. As followers of Christ, we follow his example and seek to live a righteous life. It is an outward expression and announcement that you are dedicated to following Jesus Christ. It is a beautiful expression of faith, but it is not merely symbolic. By giving yourself to Jesus Christ through baptism, you are announcing your inward spiritual change.
Who Can Be Baptized
Baptism is for everyone who has made a conscious decision to follow our Lord Jesus Christ. If you have committed to follow Jesus, obey the Word of God, and renew your life under these principles, you are qualified to be baptized. More so, if you are ready to let go of your sins, your past transgressions, and seek to be free from sin, then baptism is the outward expression of that desire.
