I have decided

“What are you waiting for? Get up and be baptized. Have your sins washed away by calling on the name of the Lord. Acts 22:16”

We are excited that you have decided to follow the Lord in Water Baptism.  At Victory Worship Center, we believe that Water Baptism is an outward sign of identifying with the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus. We believe that all who have committed themselves to Jesus Christ as their Lord should be baptized. It is a symbol to testify before God and man, of the promise and covenant you have made in your heart with Jesus Christ.

Our Water Baptism is held the first Sunday of every month at our Ruthrauff Campus at 9:30 am and 11:30 am services; and at our Copper Mountain and Victory Español campuses at the 11:30 am service. Register for your preferred time and campus by clicking on the link below.

Water Baptism

HOW SHOULD I BE WATER BAPTIZED?
Baptism is to be done by immersion in water, because the Greek word “baptize” literally means to submerge or dunk. Jesus was im­mersed (Matthew 3: 13-17), the early church immersed (Acts 2: 41) and the New Testament teaches nothing but immersion.
WHO SHOULD BE WATER BAPTIZED?
All those who have committed themselves to Jesus Christ as their Lord, should be baptized. For this reason, we do not baptize babies or children who are too young to make  a conscious decision to follow Christ. While babies may be dedicated to the Lord from birth (1 Samuel 1 :21-24), baptism is reserved for believers.

Once you have committed your­self to Jesus Christ and acknowledge Him as Lord by turning away from sin and trusting  Him, you are ready for water baptism.

WHAT IS THE SIGNIFICANCE OF WATER BAPTISM?
Baptism is a symbol of a covenant and complement, much like a wedding ring. When a couple marries, they give each other a wed­ding ring. This ring does not make them mar­ried, the promise and covenant they made to each other makes them married. The ring is a symbol to others of the promise and covenant they made in their hearts to each other.

Like the wedding ring, baptism is a symbol which testifies before God and man, of the promise and covenant a person made in his heart with Jesus.

At the same time, baptism is more than just a symbol. There is a very real spiritual work that is accomplished in the waters of baptism (Colossians 2:11-12). Ac­cording to these verses, God cuts away the old sin-loving nature from our hearts.

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF WATER BAPTISM?
Through water baptism, we identify with the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus. It’s like saying to the Lord Jesus, “Your death is my death & I no longer have to die for my sins. Your life is my life. I now have your eter­nal life, and I will not die for my sins” (Ro­mans 3:23; 6:23).

As you are immersed under water, you bury your old sinful nature. When you come up out of the water, you ex­perience the new life and resurrection that belongs to you through Jesus.

WHY SHOULD I BE WATER BAPTIZED?
Jesus, the Creator of the Universe, was water baptized (Mark 1 :9-11) and He commands all believers to follow His example.

(Matthew 28:19-20; 1 Peter 2:21). Baptism is an act of confession and identification with Christ. It is a demonstration of your covenant with God and your commitment to Christ.

WHEN SHOULD I GET WATER BAPTIZED?
Because the Greek word “baptized” literally means to submerge or dunk, baptism is to be done by immersion in water. You should get baptized at you first opportunity after you have received Christ as Lord and Savior (Acts 8:35-39; 16:30-34; 18:8).
