Step Out in Obedience
At CrossRoads Church, we believe that baptism is a step of obedience for those who follow Jesus. It is a way for us to publicly declare that we acknowledge Jesus as Lord and are committing our lives to walking in His way.
Baptism is not necessary for salvation—it is only faith in Jesus Christ and recognizing our need for Him that saves us. As Jesus said, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6). However, baptism is something Jesus commanded. It is a way for us to obey Jesus as we follow Him. Jesus told His disciples, “If you love me, keep my commands” (John 14:15). Our love for God is demonstrated through doing the things He asked of us. In this case, Jesus’ last command to His disciples is related to baptism.
Baptism is a significant step in your faith journey. As a church community, we look forwarding to celebrating with you!
The next baptism service will be outdoors, Sunday, July 9, 2023

We encourage you to view Pastor Dan's video message below. It's a great resource for helping you better understand what baptism is all about.
Therefore 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. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age” - Matthew 28:19-20
