Baptism is the first step of faith for believers.
Baptism doesn’t save anyone; it’s Jesus who does that. Baptism illustrates Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection. (1 Corinthians 15:3-4) The moment you put your trust in Jesus Christ as your personal Savior & Lord, a life change takes place in your heart – and baptism is a picture of that. It’s a way to show others what God is doing in you and to let the world know you are not defined by your past, but are now living a new life as a follower of Christ. (2 Corinthians 5:17)
Baptism doesn’t make you a believer… it shows that you already believe. Like a wedding ring, it signifies an inward commitment that has been made. We follow Jesus’ example in baptism. He was baptized (Mark 1:9) and commanded us to be baptized. (Matthew 28:19-20)
At Del Sol we baptize by immersion. That’s the example we see throughout Scripture and is actually the meaning of the word “baptize”, which means to immerse or dip under water.
