>> NEXT BAPTISMS: Sunday, NOvember 10th <<
sign up today!
Baptism is a powerful, public, and very personal "enactment" of dying with Christ, and then rising with him to new life! (Check out Romans 6:1-4!)
And the Bible straight up says that it's the next step to take after we say YES to Jesus as our forgiver and Lord. In Jesus' parting words to his disciples, he told them:
“I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:18-20)
And that’s exactly what they did. Over and over again, as the Jesus movement swept the world, the very first thing people did after they said yes to Christ’s forgiveness and leadership, was to be baptized.

If you've got a few questions you'd like to discuss personally, we host an "Understanding Baptism" class on Nov. 2/3 after the 5pm & 11am service- in the 5th/6th Grade Room (just off the lobby).
When you're baptized at TerraNova, we ask you 3 questions in the water. Click here for a downloadable pdf study guide for the 3 questions.
