Why Baptism?

Baptism is for anyone who wants to confess Jesus as Lord. The Bible teaches that new Christians are baptized into a local community, so baptism is also connected to church membership.

We recommend that anyone interested in either baptism or membership attend our Welcome Home Gathering. In this get together, we will discuss the vision and passions of Antioch Baptist Church, why baptism and membership are important, and the responsibilities of church members. At the end of this gathering, all participants are given an opportunity to meet with a pastor, pursue baptism, and sign our membership covenant.

The Bible says that all professing Christians should be baptized (Matthew 28:18-20). Whether you've been following Jesus for a long time and never got baptized or are a new Christian, we would be honored to baptize you!
