Water Baptism is an act of dipping or immersing a person in water. It is a wonderful symbolism of the believer’s identification with the death, burial and resurrection of Christ. It is not, however, to be confused with or regarded as a means of salvation.
Romans 10:9 says “that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” Once you have confessed Jesus as Lord, Water Baptism is an important corresponding step of obedience to the Word of God and an outward sign of an inward work of God’s grace in your life. “Therefore we are buried with Him through baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life” Romans 6:4.
At Word of Life Christian Center, Water Baptisms are conducted four times a year. All candidates for baptism must be at least seven (7) years old and must be born again.
