Do I have to be a member of TRC in order to be baptized?
You do not need to be a member in order to be baptized, although we would prefer that you attend regularly and consider The River Community your church home. If you have recently made a commitment to Christ here at the river, we would encourage you to be baptized as soon as possible, even if you have not been attending for very long.Why should I be baptized?
- You want to follow the example of Jesus. “ At that time Jesus came from Nazareth and was baptized by John in the river.” Mark 1:9
- Jesus commanded it. “ Jesus said, ‘Go then, to all people everywhere and make them I disciples, baptize them in the name of the father, the son, and the Holy Spirit, and then teach them to obey everything I have commanded you’” Matthew 28:19-20
- It shows you are a believer. “…many of the Corinthians who heard him believed and were baptized” Acts 18:8
