Why You Should Be Baptized
Ordinance of the Church
The ordinance of Baptism by immersion is commanded in the Scripture. All who Repent and believe in Christ as Savior and Lord are to be Baptized. Thus they declare to the world that they have died with Christ and they also have been raised with Him, to walk in the newness of life.
