Baptism

What does it mean to take the next step?

The Bible teaches that baptism is for individuals who have recognized and turned from their sinfulness and put their faith and trust in Jesus, and at Storyline we want to ensure that every person we baptize truly understands that decision.

 

Baptism is a visible symbol of a person’s union with Christ showing His death and resurrection. It signifies that a person’s old way of life (unbelief) has been put to death and that they now have new life in Jesus. Baptism alone doesn’t save a person, but it shows that a person has made a decision to follow Christ.
