Baptism

SCRIPTURE TEACHES when you turn from your sins and trust in Jesus for salvation, you should be baptized as an act of obedience and as a declaration to the church of the work that God has done in your life. We love to celebrate baptism decisions here at North River.

WHAT IS BAPTISM?

Baptism is identifying with Jesus in his death, burial, and resurrection. (Romans 6:1–11)

Baptism declares the death of my flesh.

Baptism declares my new life in Christ.

Baptism is a public portrayal and proclamation of all God has done for me in Christ.

WHO SHOULD BE BAPTIZED?

Anyone who has turned from sin and trusted in Christ for salvation. (Ephesians 2:1–10)

WHY SHOULD WE BE BAPTIZED?

Jesus commanded it. (Matthew 28:19–20)

Scripture teaches it. (Acts 2:38–39)

It allows me to publicly declare my love for Jesus. (Matthew 10:32–33)

It invites the church to rejoice in what God is doing. (Psalm 111:1–4)

MATTHEW 28:19–20 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.

ACTS 2:38–39 And Peter said to them, “Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is for you and for your children and for all who are far off, everyone whom the Lord our God calls to himself.”

MATTHEW 10:32–33 So everyone who acknowledges me before men, I also will acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven, but whoever denies me before men, I also will deny before my Father who is in heaven.

PSALM 111:1–4 Praise the Lord! I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart, in the company of the upright, in the congregation. Great are the works of the Lord, studied by all who delight in them. Full of splendor and majesty is his work, and his righteousness endures forever. He has caused his wondrous works to be remembered; the Lord is gracious and merciful.
