Why Baptize?

Baptism is not required for your salvation; it is a public statement of faith for believers. The baptismal waters don’t save anyone, only Jesus does that. Baptism is like a wedding ring, signifying a relationship rather than forming that relationship.
Baptism illustrates Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection. (1 Corinthians 15:3-4) It shows our new life as a follower of Christ. (2 Corinthians 5:17)
Baptism doesn’t make you a believer… it shows that you already believe. We follow Jesus’ example in baptism. He was baptized (Mark 1:9), and commanded us to be baptized (Matthew 28:19-20).
At Frederica, we baptize by immersion. That’s the example we see throughout Scripture, and is the basis for the meaning of the word “baptize,” which means to immerse (or dip under) in water.
Are you ready to be baptized?
If you’re a believer, you should be baptized! It doesn’t matter if you were saved 20 years ago or just last week. Now is the time to take the next step in your faith journey.
