One question people often ask is: When do I know I should be baptized?
This is a wonderful & important question.
Baptism is a wonderful moment in the life of a believer & in the life of the church. Simply put, baptism—as stated in greater length here—is one of the first steps of obedience a new believer should take. Jesus commanded his disciples to be baptized (Matt. 28:19). So in obedience to this command, a new believer should be immersed in water in the name of the Father, Son, & Holy Spirit. In so doing, we are saying, I believe in Jesus Christ and I believe that I have died with him & have now been raised to new life with him.
So when should we be baptized?
We should be baptized when we believe in Jesus Christ & are ready to testify publicly that we have left everything to follow him. However, since this is such an important question, it is helpful to get the input from family, friends, your pastor, & others to know whether or not we are ready.
Later this summer—in June or July—we plan to have a baptism service for Trinity Grace.
