Baptism

We believe the Bible teaches that only believers and all believers should be baptized subsequent to salvation. 

Biblical Baptism

  1. Scripture teaches that only saved people should be baptized (Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:41).
  2. Scripture teaches that every saved person should be baptized (Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:41; 8:26–36).
  3. There are biblical indications that children can be baptized (Acts 11:14; 16:15, 16:31-33; 18:8).
  4. There does seem to be some age at which a person becomes accountable for his/her sins (2 Samuel 12:23; Romans 7:9) and needs to receive Christ, and thus baptism.
  5. The church must be careful to baptize only those people who are truly saved (Matthew 28: 18–19; Acts 2:41; 8:12, 8:36-39; 10:47–48).
  6. The church must avoid establishing rules regarding baptism, which the Bible itself does not make (Acts 15:10; Galatians 5:1).
  7. Since the Bible does not establish a specific minimum or maximum age when a person can be saved, the church must not establish a specific minimum or maximum age for a person to be baptized.
  8. Since the Bible does not give any other qualification for baptism, other than it happen subsequently to salvation, no other qualification should be added by the church.
