For many followers of Jesus, baptism is one of the believer’s first steps of public obedience to Christ. Baptism is not required for salvation through Christ, but it is an outward symbol of what God has done in the life, heart, and spirit of His followers and naturally follows salvation by grace through faith (Ephesians 2:8).

Lifebridge believes that Scripture teaches the following regarding baptism:

  • Baptism is an act of obedience to Christ’s command (Matthew 28:19-20).

  • Baptism symbolizes a death to and cleansing from sin, and follows an individual’s decision to trust Christ for salvation (Acts 2:418:1210:47-48).

  • The only baptism practiced in Scripture was baptism by immersion, identifying the believer with the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ, and was modeled by Christ Himself (Mark 1:9-10; Romans 6:1-11).
