We believe Baptism is a public testimony of your new life as a Christian. Baptism does not make you a believer; rather it shows that you already believe. Baptism does not "save" you, only your faith in Christ does that. Baptism is like a wedding ring - it's the outward symbol of the commitment you have made in your heart. We believe Baptism should occur after you have trusted Christ as Savior and that there is no reason to delay. Christ commanded that all of His disciples (those who have trusted Him by faith as their Savior) be baptized.
