BAPTISM

According to the Bible, the blood of Jesus Christ shed on the cross provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sin; therefore, salvation (being born again) occurs only when a person places his/her faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as the sufficient payment for sin. Following the example of New Testament believers and Jesus Himself, born-again believers should be baptized in water. Baptism does not save a person; it simply symbolizes what took place in a person's heart at the time of salvation. Jesus died and arose from the dead. Water baptism symbolizes for the believer his/her sharing in Jesus' death and resurrection, illustrated by a believer's going under the water (dying to the old way of life) then rising from the water (entering into a new life in Jesus), symbolically washed clean from sins forgiven by Jesus' death on the cross.

Because Jesus instructed His followers to be baptized, baptism is an act of obedience. While it is not necessary for salvation, water baptism demonstrates submission to God. At Discovery Church, believers are immersed just as Jesus was, and by doing so, they are publicly acknowledging their faith in Him.
