Believer's Baptism

Baptists baptize persons only after they make a personal confession of their faith in Christ.

 

Baptists do not believe that a loving God condemns anyone for a sin they did not commit.  We do not view baptism as a remedy for original sin.  We do not baptize infants.

 

Baptists practice baptism by totally immersing persons in water, rather than by sprinkling, pouring, or anointing persons with water.  

 

Baptism by immersion preserves the dramatic imagery of the meaning of baptism as a symbolic death, burial and resurrection.   The symbolism of baptism pictures:
bullet

the death, burial and resurrection of Christ who died for our sins and 

bullet

the believer's own death to sin, burial of a sinful nature, and resurrection to a new life in Christ.
