Baptism

At Northeast, we say that Baptism is a public declaration of a private decision. We believe that every person who has placed their faith in Jesus Christ should be baptized.

Baptism doesn’t save you, but instead shows what took place in your heart at the moment you said “yes” to Jesus. Baptism shows that you…

1. Believe in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior who forgave your sins through His death on the cross.

2. Share in Christ’s death and resurrection, illustrated by going under the water (dead to your old life) then rising again (new life)

Because Jesus was baptized by immersion  (Matthew 3:16), every baptism in the Bible was by immersion (Acts 8:36-39 for example), and we believe this best symbolizes burial and resurrection, all of the baptisms we celebrate are done in this way.

Ready to get baptized?

If you have committed your life to Christ and have not already taken this step of faith, we invite you to be baptized at our next Baptism Celebration on November 19th.
