Baptism At The Shore: What Is Baptism? Why Should I Be Baptized?

You’ve likely heard us talking about Baptism At The Shore… when hundreds of Liquidites will take the plunge in the Atlantic Ocean! But, what does that really mean? And is this the next step on your spiritual journey?

First, you need to know that baptism does not save us. The Bible teaches that salvation is based on a personal faith in Jesus Christ apart from any other action. Rather, Baptism is a symbol of the salvation that has already taken place in our life through our personal faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior! When you’re baptized, it’s a public declaration that you have made the decision to follow Jesus!

Jesus set the example by being baptized Himself in the Jordan River. And, we get baptized because Jesus commands us to do so! Obedience to Jesus shows we believe and follow Him. Because Jesus went public about His love for us, we can go public about our love for Him!

If it’s clear to you that baptism is the next step on your journey… sign-up to join us at the Jersey Shore! If you have more questions, that’s okay. Talk to your Campus Pastor and check out our Baptism FAQ.
