Baptism is an important step of obedience that shows others we personally trust Jesus for our salvation. Jesus was baptized when He was on the earth, and we do this to follow His example. We believe that water baptism is a public 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. When we baptize at ECC, individuals are submerged under water to identify with the death and burial of Jesus and raised out of the water to identify with His resurrection.
