The Bible teaches that baptism is the first step of obedience after making the commitment to follow Christ. Baptism communicates this commitment to Christ, and symbolizes to the world the new life of the believer.

People often have questions about baptism: Why should I be baptized? What if I was already baptized, do I need to do it again? What’s the difference between being sprinkled or dunked? To answer a few of those questions, we encourage you to read this Baptism FAQ.
