Next Baptism: June 17

One of the next steps that you're going to want to take is to go public with your faith and declare to everyone you're a follower of Jesus through baptism. Baptism is a symbol of our faith. It represents your sins being washed away and coming up as a new creation in Christ Jesus.

“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).

Why Baptism?

Jesus was baptized (Matthew 3:13-17).

The Bible tells us that every believer is to be baptized in water in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19).

Baptism is a symbolic act to publicly profess your salvation (1 Peter 3:21).

At C3, we practice full-immersion baptism, symbolizing the process of death and resurrection that Jesus went through for us
(Romans 6:3-4).

When we go under the water, it symbolizes the death and burial of our sinful selves. When we come out of the water, it symbolizes our resurrection as a new creation in Christ (Galatians 3:27; 2 Corinthians 5:17).
