“Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me.” John 12:26


In the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Baptism in water by immersion is a direct commandment of our Lord and is for believers only. The ordinance is a symbol of the Christian’s identification with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection. (Matthew 28:19; Romans 6:4; Colossians 2:12; Acts 8:36-39) The following recommendation regarding the water baptismal formula is adopted: “Upon your profession of faith, in the Name of Jesus, I now baptize you in the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. “Amen.”
