We Believe..

and practice two ordinances—(1) Water Baptism by Immersion after repenting of one's sins and receiving Christ's gift of salvation, and (2) Holy Communion (the Lord's Supper) as a symbolic remembrance of Christ's suffering and death for our salvation.

Memory Verse :

1 Corinthians 11:25 NIV

In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me.”

Matthew 28:19 NIV

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,

Bible Lesson : 

Jesus' Baptism (Matthew 3)
Jesus Starting Communion (Matthew 26, Mark 14, Luke 22)

Jesus lived as an example for us in so many ways.  The greatest is his selfless love for all others.  We can be like this as well, but there were also some outward things Jesus did to 'show' others His dedication and remembrance of truth. He was baptized, even though John felt that he was not worthy to do it, Jesus understood the importance of showing this outwardly, and explained it for us later.  We are baptized just as Jesus was and it symbolizes the end of the sinful man and the birth of the new man covered in the blood of Christ!  Jesus also made reference during the last supper of our need to remember what He was to do in order for us to have acceptance in Salvation.  We remember the blood shed and the body that was torn for us.  While these outward things do not really change us, we really 'want' to do them because of our inward changes due to the acceptance of Christ within!
