What Is Baptism?
Baptism is an outward confession of an inward change after you have received Jesus as your Savior. It is an essential step as you continue in your journey as a disciple of Jesus. Southbridge baptizes by immersion, as seen throughout the early church in the New Testament. Baptism is a beautiful display of the gospel: We identify with Jesus in His death and burial as we immerse in water and symbolize His resurrection when we come back out of the water.
