What is baptism?

The Bible teaches that we are saved by grace through faith. One way we can outwardly express our faith is through baptism.

Baptism is a public confession of putting one’s trust and hope in Jesus, and it’s for everyone who has put his or her faith in Christ. At Tower Life Center, we believe baptism is an outward expression of that internal transformation and it’s one of the first steps we take when we start following Jesus. 

We practice baptism by immersion. Jesus modeled this form of baptism and commanded it, making baptism a symbolic act of obedience and faith.  

In the New Testament, the Greek word for baptism is “baptizo,” which means to plunge, dip, or immerse. Baptism by immersion represents the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus, symbolizing our old self dying and our new self being raised as a new creation in Jesus.

Baptism FAQs

Why be water baptized?

Those who are water baptized are following Jesus’ example and obeying His command.

“As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. And a voice from heaven said, ‘This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.’” —Matthew 3:16–17

“Then Jesus came to them and said, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.’” —Matthew 28:18–20

Water baptism is a public declaration of three very important things:

You are a follower of Jesus Christ.
“Those who accepted his message were baptized.” —Acts 2:41

You are beginning a changed life in Christ.
“We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.” —Romans 6:4

You are part of a new family.
“So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.” —Galatians 3:26–27

Your water baptism should have signified you becoming a follower of Jesus, beginning a changed life, and uniting with a new family. If your water baptism did not reflect this change of life, then you should be water baptized again.

Every child can have a personal relationship with Jesus, and in ITOWN Kids we encourage them to make a decision to follow Him. Our children are encouraged to not just learn about Jesus but learn from Him by walking with Him everyday. Water baptism is the public declaration of your child’s internal decision to follow Christ. We advise parents to wait until their child can answer the following questions before being water baptized:

1. When did you decide to follow Jesus and become His forever friend?
2. What does it mean to be water baptized?
