It’s a celebration.
At Gateway, we believe water baptism is a celebration of your decision to follow Jesus. Just like a wedding and wedding rings are a declaration of a marriage covenant, water baptism is a declaration of the covenant you’ve made with God.
Baptism is an important step of obedience that shows others we have personally trusted Jesus for our salvation. Jesus was baptized when He was on the earth, and we do this to follow His example. When Christians are baptized, they are submerged under water to identify with the death and burial of Jesus and raised out of the water to identify with His resurrection. We believe that water baptism is a public declaration of three important things: you are a follower of Jesus Christ, you are beginning a changed life in Christ, and you are part of a new family.
Baptisms happen periodically throughout the year during our weekly services at both campuses.
