Baptism is the beginning of our public act of faith and our gateway into the Body of Christ.

Under the New Testament, baptism is a divine requirement for all believers in the LORD Jesus Christ to observe as the first act of obedience to His will.

How It Works?

The Holy Bible provides clear direction on baptismal stages, who can be baptised and why.
In Matthew 3:11, the forerunner of King Jesus, said I indeed baptise you with water unto repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptise you with the Holy Spirit, and Fire. This refers to John’s role in baptising believers (adults) with water and his announcement about one who is mightier than himself who would baptise believers or adults with the Holy Spirit and Fire.
The believers must have heard about the stages of baptism, understood what they meant, make an informed decision about the importance or significance of baptism for their lives and family and subsequently, make a public profession of faith based on the baptism into repentance and become valid members of the Body of Christ.

Baptismal process:
The following steps describe water baptism.
In water baptism, elders accompany the believer into a river for immersion.
In a symbolic and public act of faith, a prepared believer with full heart and soul commitment to the Sovereign LORD enters a safe river.
Priestly prayers are offered by elders on behalf of those who need baptism.
During baptism, the believer’s soul is buried with Christ, raised from the dead in trespasses and sin nature, and clothed with the NEW MAN. Christ is the only one who can raise us from the dead into eternal life.

“But I must explain to you how all this mistaken idea of denouncing pleasure and praising pain was born and I will give you a complete account of the system, and expound the actual teachings of the great explorer of the truth, the master-builder of human happiness. No one rejects, dislikes, or avoids pleasure itself, because it is pleasure, but because those who do not know how to pursue pleasure rationally encounter consequences that are extremely painful. Nor again is there anyone who loves or pursues or desires to obtain pain of itself, because it is pain, but because occasionally circumstances occur in which toil and pain can procure him some great pleasure. To take a trivial example, which of us ever undertakes laborious physical exercise, except to obtain some advantage from it? But who has any right to find fault with a man who chooses to enjoy a pleasure that has no annoying consequences, or one who avoids a pain that produces no resultant pleasure?”
