Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I be baptized?
Jesus, himself, was baptized (Matthew 3:13-17) and commanded us to baptize others (Matthew 28:19-20). We get baptized to be obedient to Christ.
What’s the requirement for baptism?
Repentance of sin and faith in Christ is the requirement for baptism (Colossians 2:12; Acts 2:38). All examples of baptism in the Bible are a profession of faith that follows a person’s belief in Christ (i.e., Acts 2:41; 8:12; 8:36-38; 10:47-48). In baptism, we are buried with Christ and “raised with him through faith” (Colossians 2:12).
Do I need to be baptized to be saved?
Baptism does not save you (Luke 23:39-43). We are saved by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone (Ephesians 2:8-9; John 3:16). Baptism is a public declaration of your saving faith in Christ. There is nothing magical about the water. It is a beautiful ceremony like that of a wedding, symbolizing the death of your old self and rebirth as a follower of Christ. We symbolically join with Christ in his death, burial, and resurrection (Romans 6:3-4; Colossians 2:12). Water baptism also illustrates the spiritual cleansing we experience when we are saved; our sins are washed away (Acts 22:14; 1 Corinthians 6:11).
How do we baptize at ACC?
We believe that all of Christ’s followers should be baptized by immersion in water in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19-20). The Greek word for “baptism” (baptizō) means to plunge, dip, or immerse something in water. Baptism is performed by immersion as a symbol of the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ (Romans 6:3-5).
What if I was baptized as a baby?
We don’t perform infant baptisms. There is no record in the Bible of infants being baptized. Also, every instance of baptism recorded in the Bible takes place after a person has faith in Jesus Christ. You must repent and have faith. Nobody can do that for you. So if you were baptized as a baby, it was a meaningful experience for your parents, but we would encourage you to make your own public profession of your faith in Jesus now that you have faith in him.

By being baptized, you are unified with Christ, as well as with with every person in every nation on earth who is also a member of the Body of Christ.
