Baptism

Would you like to commit yourself to Jesus Christ? If you have become a Jesus follower the next step for you is to be baptized. Mark 16:16 says "Anyone who believes and is baptized will be saved." It is like putting the exclamation point on your conversion experience.

The scripture demands baptism for every follower of Jesus. To be sure we could not misunderstand what Jesus was asking He modeled it for us when He was baptized.

In Jesus' command to his followers just before he ascended into heaven he exhorted them with these words found in Matthew 28:18-20 "I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this I am with you always even unto the end of the age."

If RockPointe Church was to neglect this teaching we would be in direct disobedience to the word of God. If you as a follower of Jesus Christ fail to be baptized when you know Jesus has commanded it you are living in a state of disobedience which hinders the work of the Holy Spirit in you. This is a very serious matter for which we will have to give an account to God one day.

May God put an urgency in your heart to obey the One who died for you. If you would like more information on being baptized, please download our Baptism Information Package below. If you have any questions, please contact the Church Office.
