Jesus literally, physically, visibly, actually rose from the dead and the world has never been the same. That historic fact is the foundation of our faith!

  • If you believe this, then truth is clarified for you!

  • If you believe this, be moved to faith that it means something, personally, to you!

  • If you believe this, repent!

  • Acknowledge your sins to God!

  • Ask for His forgiveness!

  • Commit to live differently!

  • If you believe this, commit to Jesus!

  • Mark your commitment

  • Be baptized, or re-baptized!

  • Obey His commands because you love Jesus!

  • When am I ready?

  • The day Peter preached, people believed and were baptized. This pattern continued.

  • You are ready when you hear about Jesus, believe what you hear and believe in Him!

  • How?

  • Be lowered into the water, fully, just as Jesus was baptized, and just as He fully left sin in the grave!

  • Going into the water... represents sharing in Jesus’s death.

  • Being in the water... represents sharing in Jesus’ rest... your old self, put to death, remaining in the grave, never to live again.

  • Coming out of the water... represents sharing in Jesus’s resurrection! Your new life begins!

  • If you believe this, and do this... then the resurrection will change everything for you!
