Baptism

What We Believe

We believe that BAPTISM is the outward expression of what Christ has already done inside your heart. Baptism is the wedding right of following Jesus, and shows the world that “I BELONG TO HIM.” At Shore Christian Church we believe baptism is an integral part of any Christ followers walk, repent, be baptized, and filled with the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:38). We practice this through full-immersion baptism, symbolizing the death of our old life and the resurrection of our new life with Christ (Romans 6:1-11)

Believe

I've acknowledged my need for a Savior, I believe that Jesus died for my sins and I believe that He was raised to life and I am now raised to life because I have asked Jesus to come into my life.

Romans 10:9

Old Ways

I've asked for forgiveness and I want to leave behind my old ways and the person I used to be before I met Jesus. I believe that He died for me so that my old ways and my sins are wiped clean and through God's grace, I can now walk in freedom with Christ Jesus.

Acts 3:19

New Life

I believe that my baptism will be my public profession of my love for Jesus and the new life that I have found in him. I believe that just as Jesus was raised to new life, because He now lives in me, I too am being raised into new life with Christ. The old me is gone, it is now Christ who lives in me.

Ephesians 2:4-5, Colossians 2:12

And that water is a picture of baptism, which now saves you, not by removing dirt from your body, but as a response to God from a clear conscience. It is effective because of the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

1 Peter 3:21

Baptism Testimonies

Last year we had 35 people come forward to be baptized. Check out a few of their stories!

Sherre Lucci

"In 2017 I publicly made the decision to be baptized. It was my outward commitment to Christ. I believe he will continue to purify me as I surrender myself and my ways everyday until that day comes when I can finally go home to Heaven."

Thomas Doty

"Last year at Shore Christian Church I made one of the best decisions, and was baptized. I discovered that it doesn't matter what's in my past, because God has cleansed me and given me a future. It was my act of obedience to God."

Jason Smith

"Getting baptized last year was very special to me. I heard Pastor Isaac talking in church about baptisms and the Lord's calling just took me over. There was no denying that I was being called to be baptized and commit myself to the Lord, mind, body and spirit. I was truly regenerated with new energy and also strengthened in my faith. It's been a great year."
