The Church further believes in the following distinctive Baptist emphases:
We believe that Christians should obey their Lord’s command to be baptized in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. To qualify for baptism, one must repent of sin and trust Jesus Christ as personal Savior and Lord. We practice water baptism of the believer by immersion.
Baptism symbolizes death to sin and resurrection to the new life in Christ and the receipt of the Holy Spirit.
