Water Baptism

Listed below are some frequently asked questions about water baptism. The answers below represent CCSB beliefs.

What is Water Baptism? Water baptism is an act of obedience that follows conversion to portray symbolically the washing away of our sins. The baptism itself does not bring salvation; salvation inspires the water baptism. Those who have received Jesus in their hearts should desire to follow Him in this ordinance.

Who can be baptized? Anyone who has sincerely believed in Jesus Christ for salvation.

Acts 8:36 And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water; and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized? Acts. 8:37 And Philip said, If thou believeth with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.

It's not about having a perfect life, but rather having a perfect Savior. So, if you have believed in Jesus, then you may be baptized.

Can children be baptized? We leave that up to the parents. Anyone who receives water baptism must realize what it means to receive it; therefore, infant baptism is not Scriptural. Some fairly young children have accepted Christ and understand water baptism enough to make it meaningful to them. As parents, you'll know of their relationship with God. If your children have believed, like in Acts 8:36-37, then they should be baptized. If they on the other hand, see it as just a thing to do, or because you are getting baptized, then you would want to wait until you are.
