Baptism

Baptism is an important step of obedience that shows others we have personally trusted Jesus for our salvation. Jesus was baptized when He was on the earth, and we do this to follow His example.

When Christians are baptized, they are submerged under water to identify with the death and burial of Jesus and raised out of the water to identify with His resurrection.

We believe that water baptism is a public declaration of three important things:

You are a follower
of Jesus Christ

You are beginning a
changed life in Christ

You are part of a new family

We believe it is a symbol of your new identity in Christ as you are baptized in the name of the Father (family), Son (servant), and Holy Spirit (missionary). Meaning that in Christ, we are a family of missionary servants.

If you are interested in being baptized at our next baptism event please send an email with “Baptism” as the subject line with your name and contact information in the body of the email to ascentchurchwoodward@gmail.com and we will reach out with next steps as soon as possible.
