As followers of Jesus Christ, baptism is an essential step in our relationship with Him. There are varying views within churches surrounding baptism, so here are some resources to clarify Generations’ position on the subject.
Baptism is a response to the good news that God himself came to rescue and renew all creation, including humanity, through the person and work of Jesus Christ.
Baptism shows others we are personally trusting in Jesus for our salvation. Jesus was baptized when He was on the earth, and we do this to follow His example. When Christians are baptized, they are submerged under water to identify with the death and burial of Jesus and raised out of the water to identify with His resurrection. We believe that water baptism is a declaration of three important things: you are a follower of Jesus Christ, you are beginning a changed life in Christ, and you are part of a new family.
