Water Baptism Personal Testimony

Jessica's Story

Jessica shares her story of renewing her faith and commitment to Jesus Christ while attending the Alpha Course. Water Baptism was a natural next step, and an outward confession of the change she felt in her heart.

Why Baptism?

“And this water symbolizes baptism that now saves you also — not the removal of dirt from the body but the pledge of a clear conscience toward God. It saves you by the resurrection of Jesus Christ.”

- 1 Peter 3:21 (NIV)

Common Questions

What is baptism?
Baptism is an important step of obedience and a public confession of your 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, and you are part of a new family.
Should I be baptized?

At Coastal Church we value the importance of water baptism for every believer. It is a significant milestone in every Christian’s life, and something that can be shared and witnessed by friends and loved ones. A typical water baptism at Coastal Church will usually have a mixture of people. It’s a time where different ages, genders and cultures can come together in a celebration of what God has done in their lives.

Should I be baptized again?

Your baptism should have signified you becoming a follower of Jesus, beginning a changed life, and uniting with a new family. If your baptism did not reflect this change of life, then you should be baptized again.
