Baptism is an outward act affirming the inward commitment a believer makes to Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Scripture teaches that immersion in water portrays the believer's union with Christ in his death, burial, and resurrection (Romans 6:3-5).
Baptism is for believers whose profession of faith in Jesus Christ and lifestyle evidences genuine salvation. For this reason, we do not baptize infants. If you were baptized as an infant, we would ask that—in obedience to Scripture and as part of becoming a member of Covenant Life Church—you be baptized as a believer. Acts 8:12 states, “…when they believed…they were baptized, both men and women.”
