What We Believe

At Springs Community Church, we believe that baptism is an outward sign of the new life given to an individual by the Spirit when they personally trusted Jesus for salvation (Romans 6:1-14; 1 Corinthians 1:18). Baptism is a concrete way for believers to demonstrate their obedience to Jesus’ command to profess faith in Him publicly (Matthew 28:19-20). As a person is immersed in the water, he or she is proclaiming:

“I believe in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and I am trusting in Him alone for my salvation.”
(1 Corinthians 15:3-4; Acts 4:12)

We believe baptism is not “essential” for salvation, but it is an important first step of obedience. There are about 200 passages that speak of salvation with no mention of baptism. While Jesus had no need to repent from sins, He was baptized as a sign of fulfilling all righteousness, identifying with the Father, and submitting to the Father’s will. Baptism is also a proclamation and illustration of these gospel truths to non-believers and an invitation for them to come to faith in Christ.

If you have not been baptized since personally trusting in Christ, we would strongly encourage you to consider baptism as a believer. Parents who are believers may decide to dedicate and pray for their babies publicly, but we believe a person should not be baptized until they can articulate their faith and declare that their life has been changed.
