An outward declaration of an inward decision.

The next step

Baptism is an outward declaration of your inward decision.  For us at Harefield these services have always been some of our most exciting and fun times!

Outward decision

Once you start your lifelong adventure with Christ, baptism by immersion is a tangible way of showing your new commitment.  We invite you, if you haven’t yet been baptised but are a follower of Jesus, to consider this next step in your Christian walk.

Baptism is for every person who has believed in Christ.

“Those who believe and accepted His message were baptised…” Acts 2:41

What is baptism?

Just like a wedding ring signifies a marriage, the act of baptism signifies a life change and acceptance of Jesus into your life.

It illustrates Christ’s burial and resurrection.  It says “I am a follower of Jesus, who died and rose again for me.

“For when you were baptised, you were buried with Christ, and in baptism you were also raised with Christ.”  Colossians 2:12

It illustrates my new life as a Christian.  It says “Now I’m a follower of Jesus, I’m determined to live a brand new life!”  Baptism doesn’t make you a believer – it shows that you believe.

New way of life

“When someone becomes a Christian he becomes a brand new person inside. The old life has passed away and a new life has begun!” 2 Corinthians 5:17

Baptism is an outward symbol of the commitment you make in your heart.
