What is Baptism?
Baptism is a step of obedience that someone takes after they have trusted in Jesus Christ as their Savior. Baptism is a symbol that someone has a restored relationship with God through their faith in Christ. At Crosspoint City, we practice baptism by immersion and only baptize professing believers in Christ (Matthew 3:16, Acts 8:37-38). Baptism is symbolic of the following things:
Christ’s death and resurrection
The Christian’s union with Christ
The new life that a Christian now walks in
The Christian is now cleansed and washed away of sin
Who Should Be Baptized
Any person who has made a genuine profession of faith should be baptized. Crosspoint City encourages anyone who has made this profession of faith to follow the way of Jesus and be baptized as a step of obedience. There is not a certain amount of time, a certain level of spiritual maturity, or any other factor that should delay a Christian from taking this step.
