In the days of the early church, hundreds and thousands of people gave their lives to Christ daily. New Believers were then baptized as a symbol of their commitment and new life in Christ.
At JCC, we see baptism exactly the same -- an outward expression of an inward commitment. When a believer is immersed, we see a powerful illustration of the death and burial of Jesus Christ and our decision to die to our old life. Rising up out of the water, the resurrection power of Jesus Christ to overcome sin and death is demonstrated as the celebration of new life in Christ begins!
