The Bible clearly teaches that baptism is the first step of obedience after making a commitment to Christ. Baptism allows a believer to communicate to the world their heart-felt commitment to Christ. People often have questions regarding baptism: Why should I be baptized? I’ve already been baptized. Do I have to do it again? Does it matter if someone is sprinkled or dunked?

You can also find out more about baptism and what scripture says about it by attending Membership 101 class. Baptism by immersion is a requirement for membership at First Baptist Church.
