Baptism

The what, why, and how of baptism at Driven Church

What is baptism?

Baptism is an outward declaration of an inward transformation in the life of the believer. It is the public proclamation of our commitment to follow Jesus for the rest of our lives.

 

Baptism is a symbol of our joining in Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection. As we are lowered into the water, it symbolizes our surrender to Jesus; the laying down of our old life when we place our faith in him. The water as it covers us symbolizes the cleansing power of Jesus' sacrifice through the shedding of His blood for our sins. And exiting the water symbolizes our being raised to new life in Christ!

 

At Driven, we believe the timing of your baptism is more important than the method used. According to Acts 19:1-5, even those who were baptized by John the Baptist in the wilderness were baptized again after placing their faith in Jesus. So, whether you're a new believer or were baptized (perhaps as a baby or child) before deciding on your own to follow Jesus, we'd like to invite you to be baptized at our next baptism service.
