Jesus & Baptism

Who Is Jesus?

Almost every religion in the world acknowledges Jesus in some way. Hindus believe Jesus to be one of the 330 million gods. Buddhism acknowledges Jesus as a great moral teacher. Islam holds Jesus to be a great prophet.  It is important to note that history as well as religion recognizes the existence of a real man named Jesus from Nazareth who led a movement, performed mighty works, offered incredible teachings, made audacious claims that ultimately led to his death on a cross, which radically changed the world forever. The Bible tells us that He is the only path to God, and it is His sacrifice opens the door to grace so that any who believe in Him will be forgiven of their sins.

What is Baptism?

Baptism is an outward expression of inward transformation. It symbolically represents a believer’s identification of Christ’s death and resurrection. It proclaims how we have died to our old self and have new life through Jesus Christ.

“We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.”
(Romans 6:4)

We believe that baptism by water immersion is an important step of obedience after making a commitment to Christ. If you are wanting to take this step, please email us at Baptisms@CentralAZ.com
