Baptism is an outward expression of an inward faith. It is showing everyone that you have confessed that Jesus is Lord and believed in your heart that God raised Him from the dead (Romans 10:9). Baptism is a way to symbolize the death and resurrection of Christ in our lives as believers. 

Connection Church's Statement of Faith describes baptism as a visual and symbolic demonstration of a person’s union with Christ in the likeness of His death and resurrection. It signifies that a former way of life has been put to death and vividly depicts the release from the mastery of Satan, sin and death.


If you have confessed with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, repented of your sin, and belived that God raised Him from the dead and you have never been baptized, your next step is baptism. Confessing, repenting, and believing make you a Christian. All Christians are commanded by Jesus to be baptized (Matthew 28:19). We encourage you to take your next step as a believer to be baptized and publicly share your faith with Him.



The representation of union in Christ’s death and resurrection is best expressed through immersion. Whether buried below or above ground, the symbolism of burial is still that of being placed under something. Likewise, resurrection is accomplished by coming out of something (whether grave or tomb). Immersion best symbolizes this reality by actually placing the believer under the water and bringing them out.
