Ready for Baptism?

BAPTISM | THE NEXT STEP

Let's celebrate the power and love of God as believers move from spiritual death to spiritual life.

We believe that baptism is an important step of obedience for every Christ follower. If you have made the decision to follow Christ, but have not yet been baptized, we invite you to sign up for baptism during our 8am or 10:30am Sunday worship.

Sign up by contacting the office at 314.487.1730 or info@canaanstl.org. One of our pastors will follow-up with you and provide additional information about baptism.

WHY IS BAPTISM IMPORTANT?

Baptism is a picture and an illustration—a symbolic act of having already given one’s life to follow Jesus Christ. Baptism by immersion best illustrates the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ on our behalf and our subsequent faith in Him. It is not necessary for salvation, but is strongly associated with salvation as it best illustrates our new identity with Jesus Christ.

When all the people were baptized, Jesus also was baptized. As He was praying, heaven opened... Luke 3:21
Baptism, which corresponds to this, now saves you (not the removal of the filth of the flesh, but the pledge of a good conscience toward God) through the resurrection of Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 3:21
