Salvation is God’s gift to you if you’ll accept it. It can not be earned through our own efforts. It is only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness that you can be saved from sin’s penalty. Eternal life begins the moment you receive Jesus Christ into your life by faith.

Baptism by immersion symbolizes the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and is our public declaration that we have accepted Christ as our personal Lord and Savior. Jesus modeled baptism although He did not have any sin. When the church began and people asked what they needed to do to be saved, the Apostle Peter told them to “Repent and be baptized for the forgiveness of sin and to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.” (Acts 2:38)
