The next step after choosing to follow Jesus is to be baptized by immersion, both in obedience to our Lord’s command, and as a public declaration of our identification with Christ in His death, burial and resurrection. Mountainview Church hosts baptisms every three months during our quarterly Celebration Sunday gatherings.
Consider the following scriptures related to baptism.
Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.
John also was baptizing at Aenon near Salim, because water was plentiful there, and people were coming and being baptized (for John had not yet been put in prison).
