At Rise City, we believe that baptism is an outward, public declaration of one’s commitment to Jesus as Lord. It symbolizes the work He has done in a Christian’s life. Through baptism, we participate in a concrete example of sharing with Jesus in His death and resurrection, leaving behind the former life and committing to a new one in Him (Romans 6:3-4).
Rise City also believes that the New Testament is clear that baptism is both a a privilege and an act of obedience for all followers of Jesus (Acts 2:38). Therefore, we encourage all who consider Rise City home, or who call themselves followers of Jesus, to take this next step.
If you are interested in being baptized please let us know.
