Here at Immanuel we believe that Baptism is:
Commanded by God (Matthew 28:19)
Entering the Family of Believers (Ephesians 4:4-6)
A Clear Conscience toward God (1 Peter 3:21)
As Followers of Jesus, we are instructed in Matthew 28 to "Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you..."
If we examine this message, we see that God has called us as believers and followers of Jesus to first make disciples. Here at Immanuel we believe in the power of discipleship, and offer multiple ways to grow not only in your knowledge of God, but the literal application of your beliefs...which is maturity in Christ.
