Baptism Into Christ

We live in a world that wants us to question our identity. The most important piece of that identity for a Christian is that we are a child of God. So how do we become that? Our text this week talks about what it means to be baptized into Christ, and knowing what that means can bring the gift of security and peace about your identity in Him. Join us as we dive into this important topic and answer many questions surrounding the nature of baptism and why the church baptizes infants.


Romans 6:1-8

6 What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace may abound? 2 By no means! How can we who died to sin still live in it? 3 Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death? 4 We were buried therefore with Him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life. 5 For if we have been united with Him in a death like His, we shall certainly be united with Him in a resurrection like His. 6 We know that our old self was crucified with Him in order that the body of sin might be brought to nothing, so that we would no longer be enslaved to sin. 7 For one who has died has been set free from sin. 8 Now if we have died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with Him.



For Adult Homes & Groups

1. What are some of your questions about baptism?

2. Have you ever doubted that you are saved? If so, why?

3. How can knowing that God saved you by giving you the gift of faith by the Holy Spirit - apart from anything you chose - give you the assurance of salvation?

4. Using scripture, discuss how you might answer some of the questions you or others have asked about baptism.


For Families with Kids

1. Read Romans 6 together. 

2. Set a time this week to sit down as a family and remember your baptism days. Parents, share with your children what you remember about the day Jesus saved them. Who was there? Where did it happen - what church or place? What was the weather like? How old were you? If you have trouble remembering the specific date and you were baptized here at Faith, contact us and we can look it up in our records!

3. After you find out your baptism dates, mark your calendars with them, and make a plan to celebrate each one when the anniversary comes up.
