Here at Crossroads, we view Baptism as a declaration that you are a follower of Jesus Christ. It is a public confession of your faith in, and commitment to, Jesus Christ. It is the next step after salvation through repentance and faith and is an important foundation for the Christian life. Water baptism is a practical demonstration of a spiritual reality that has already taken place in your life.
We bury the ‘old life,’ and we rise to walk in a ‘new life’. Baptism is like a wedding ring; it is the outward symbol of the commitment you made in your heart, a commitment that has to be followed through and lived out on a daily basis. We continue the practice of water baptism today as a symbol of our personal and public identification and union with the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
We celebrate the Lord's Supper as a "Moment of Remembrance"...focusing on the body and the blood of the Savior who made redemption, repentance, and reconciliation possible. We worshipfully celebrate this incredible symbol of our union with Jesus Christ every 8 weeks during our 9:30am hour we call "The Ekklesia...a time for the church to be the church".
