Baptism

‚Äč

And they said, "Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household."  And they spoke the word of the Lord to him and to all who were in his house.  And he took them the same hour of the night and washed their wounds; and he was baptized at once, he and all his family.  Acts 16:31-33 ESV

Baptism is a very special, once-in-a-lifetime experience, where a Christian makes a public profession of faith in Jesus Christ. Baptism is in obedience to Jesus' command to "be baptized in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit" (Matthew 28:18-20) and communicates our surrender to Him as Lord of our life. Baptism also connects us in solidarity with the whole church, in the whole world at all times.

Baptisms at First Southern are held during the Sunday morning worship service.
