Believer's baptism is exactly what those words literally mean - "the immersion in water of a believer in Christ as a way of stating their new life in Him!" Baptism does not make you a believer, but rather, shows that you do believe, and acts as your public statement of faith that you are not ashamed to be called "one of His followers!"
Since baptism is commanded of us as the way to demonstrate our new identity with Christ as our Savior and Lord, (Matthew 28:19; Romans 6:4; Colossians 2:12), we expect all followers of Christ who wish to be members of PHBC be baptized as believers. We joyfully celebrate this "coming out as a follower of Christ" during the monthly Celebration Services held on the 4th Sunday evening of each month.
If you are ready to follow Jesus in believer's baptism at our next Celebration Service, please email Pastor Jason (firstname.lastname@example.org) of your desire to do this and he will contact you to speak to you further about your decision. God bless you!
When you are baptized we encourage you to share a little bit of your Faith Story. Here are some simple questions to help you.
