Baptism & Membership
“Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.”
At PCBC, we believe in “one Lord, one faith, one baptism” (Eph 4:5). We believe the Bible teaches that baptism is an ordinance of the church, offered to believers as one of the family habits our Lord Jesus gives us (Mt 28:19-20). When someone is baptised, they are also welcomed into membership (Acts 2:41).
Baptism is an outward sign of an inward reality; it pictures the change of heart and life that happens when, by God’s spirit, a person repents from their sin and puts their trust in Jesus Christ alone for their hope, peace, joy and salvation. Like a wedding ring symbolises the union of marriage, we believe baptism symbolises a person united with Christ, living in Him (Rom 6:3-4).
