Water Baptism is profound expression of faith and a celebration of new beginnings in Christ. Drawing inspiration from Acts 2:38, water baptism is public declaration of repentance and a commitment to a life transformed by faith in Jesus Christ. As Peter proclaimed, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins,” we too embrace this call to renewal and spiritual awakening.

The act of baptism, as emphasized in 1 Peter 3:21, is much more than a physical ritual; it is a pledge of a clear conscience toward God, a sacred commitment to walk in His ways. Baptism symbolizes the cleansing of our spirit, not just the body, marking a pivotal moment of salvation and a heartfelt response to God’s call. Furthermore, as we are reminded in Acts 22:16, baptism is an urgent call to action, a crucial step in washing away our sins and calling on the name of the Lord. “And now what are you waiting for? Get up, be baptized and wash your sins away, calling on his name,” echoes the transformative power of this practice.

At Encounter Church, Baptism Sundays are a time of joyous celebration for the entire church family. Each baptism is a witness to the grace of God and the power of faith. It’s a moment where heaven and earth rejoice together as each individual takes a significant step in their spiritual journey, publicly affirming their dedication to Christ and His teachings.

Join us for Baptism Sundays, a time of renewal, commitment, and rejoicing in the powerful work of God in our lives. As we witness each baptism, we celebrate the journey of faith each believer has embarked upon and the continuous grace that sustains us all.
