Purpose of Baptism

Baptism is a sacrament—an outward sign of an inward grace. It is something God is doing in us and for us that we cannot do for ourselves. Baptism has been a Christian symbol since the time of Jesus. It involves applying water to Christians to symbolize their death to the old way of life, (Romans 6.3-4) and their new life that God provides (Galatians 3.26-27). Baptism is an obedient response to Christ’s command (Matthew28:19) and seals one’s intention to follow God (Acts 2.38-41).

Baptism Class

At BFC, baptisms are during our Sunday morning worship services so we can celebrate with what God is doing in your life. Baptisms are scheduled for at least once a quarter.  Each baptism candidate is asked to attend a class in preparation for baptism.
