BAPTISM


The importance of being Baptized

Welcome to CLF!

If you are looking for a place to get baptized in Cape Coral, Florida, or if you would like to baptize your children in our church, read below and find out what are the Baptism requirements. Baptisms are performed Sunday’s during the all our Services: 8:30AM – 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM. 

What is the meaning of Baptism?

Jesus saves you by grace through faith in Him. Water Baptism is the next step after giving your life to Jesus to show you are fully committed to leaving your old life behind and living a brand new life with your sins from your past washed clean.

WATER BAPTISM REPRESENTS JESUS CHRIST’S DEATH, RESURRECTION AND YOUR NEW LIFE AS A FOLLOWER OF CHRIST

“Christ died for our sins… He was buried…And He was raised on the third day.” – 1 Corinthians 15:3-4

“For you were buried with Christ when you were baptized. And with Him, you were raised to a new life because you trusted the mighty power of God, who raised Christ from the dead.” – Colossians 2:12

“We were therefore buried with Him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.” – Romans 6:4

 

WE GET BAPTIZED FOR TWO MAIN REASONS:

1. TO FOLLOW THE EXAMPLE SET BY JESUS CHRIST
“At that time Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan.” – Mark 1:9

 2. BECAUSE CHRIST COMMANDS IT 
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” – Matthew 28:19-20
 
 

WHO SHOULD BE BAPTIZED?

ANYONE who is a believer in Jesus Christ.”Those who accepted His message were baptized.” – Acts 2:41

WHEN SHOULD I GET BAPTIZED?
As soon as you receive Christ into your LIFE, you can — and should – be baptized.

 

HOW IS BAPTISM DONE?
The Greek word “baptize” means “to immerse or dip underwater.”

We believe in immersion for this reason. Every baptism in the BIBLE was by immersion and that’s the way Jesus did it!

“As soon as Jesus was baptized, He went up out of the water.” – Matthew 3:16
