We want you to be baptized!
From time to time we set aside a time to baptize new believers at our Sunday morning Worship Services.
Believers are called to be baptized as a symbol of belief in whole-heartedly following Jesus Christ. The biblical church of Jesus Christ is called to make disciples and to baptize in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
“We believe each local church should practice the ordinances of baptism and the Lord’s Supper. We believe that baptism is an ordinance of the Lord by which those who have repented and come to faith express their union with Christ in His death, burial and resurrection. We practice baptism by immersion in water in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. It is a sign of belonging to the new covenant people of God, and a symbol of burial and cleansing, signifying death to the old life of unbelief, and purification from the pollution of sin.” (Matthew 3:17, 28:19; Acts 2:38, 8:36-39)
“We believe in the one universal Church, a living spiritual body of which Christ is the head and all regenerated persons, past and present, are members. We believe in the local church, consisting of a company of believers in Jesus Christ, baptized on a credible profession of faith, and associated for worship, prayer, fellowship, discipleship, service and evangelism. We believe that God has laid upon the members of the local church the primary task of living and communicating the gospel of Jesus Christ to a lost world.” (Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:8, 2:42-47; Ephesians 1:22, 2:19-22, 4:15-16, 5:19-21; Colossians 1:18; Hebrews 10:23-25)
Mission Statement of Alliance:
“We are called by the Grace of God, for the Glory of God, to become and multiply fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.”
