Jesus forgives our sins when we place our faith and trust in Him. We are saved when we acknowledge that it's only by the sacrifice of His death and the miracle of His resurrection that we are made clean and whole. At Emmanuel, we call this “coming to Christ.”
If you’ve come to Christ, you are ready to be baptized.
In a marriage ceremony, the bride and groom exchange rings and publicly profess their love for and dedication to one another - in front of God, their friends, and their family. Similarly, when we are baptized, we publicly profess our love for and dedication to Jesus. We establish ourselves as His followers - His disciples.
