  • an important step of obedience in the believer’s life, yet only an outward acknowledgment of the salvation experience already accomplished


I was baptized before, do I need to get baptized again?2023-12-02T21:51:24+00:00

If you were baptized as a baby or child before you trusted in Christ, then yes, you should. If you were baptized as a believer elsewhere, you don’t have to be baptized again at GBC.

Does baptism forgive my sins?2023-12-02T21:52:43+00:00

No—trusting Jesus forgives your sins.  Baptism is a public declaration of your decision to trust Jesus.

Do I need to have it all together before being baptized?2023-12-02T21:55:14+00:00

No – being baptized doesn’t mean you’re perfect.  If you are trusting Christ for salvation, you’re ready to be baptized.
