Christian Baptism - What is it?
Christian Baptism is an essential part of the Christian experience as it provides a way for the Believer to demonstrate their faith before the Church and the world and to show that our attitude towards God has changed. When a Believer is baptised it is a show of the candidate’s commitment to a deeper walk with Christ and identifying with the name of Jesus Christ.
Two requirements are crucial before baptism:
- The candidate must come to a ‘Saving knowledge’ of the Lord Jesus and confess Him before others
The candidate must understand the significance of what baptism is and what it is not.
