WATER BAPTISM SERVICE
FREEDOM HOUSE CHURCH MANCHESTER
WHAT IS WATER BAPTISM:
Being immersed in water is a public way to celebrate the spiritual transformation that took place in your life when you were born again. It is a symbol of being dead and buried and then coming out of the grave, John 3: 3-21; Acts 8: 27-39; Romain 6: 4, Acts 2:38.
Water baptism does not save you; But it is a celebration of our faith in Jesus Christ and a public demonstration that you are saved by the Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, at Freedom House Church, we can only offer water baptism to those who understand salvation and believe that Jesus Christ is the Lord and Savior of their lives. (Matthew 28: 19, Mark 16, Acts 8: 36-39, 10: 17-48)
BAPTISM OF CHILD WHAT IS IT
Children from 12 and older who have decided to follow Jesus can be baptised if they understand the meaning of baptism.
For all of the young children who want to be baptised, we want to tell you that it's not just about putting your heads and bodies in the water. It's about showing people or your friends that you now believe in Jesus-Christ.
We firmly believe that the decision should be made by themselves and not by parents and that by making this decision it is about showing what is going on in your heart because of your faith in Jesus Christ. It is a symbol of washing away your old life and starting a new life with Jesus-Christ. (Romans 6: 1-4, Colossians 2:12, 1 Corinthians 10: 1-2 and 2 Corinthians 5:17)
