Believer's Baptism

Jesus and the Apostles preached that we should repent of our sin, believe in Jesus for salvation and be baptized to demonstrate it. Baptism simply stated, is an outward symbolic act that demonstrates the inward reality of what God has done in bringing us to faith in Jesus. Just as Jesus died, was buried and rose again, so we too, die to our flesh through faith in Jesus’ sacrifice for us on the cross and are given new life in him. 

Sturgeon Bay Community Church practices Believer’s Baptism. Believer’s Baptism is the act of obedience on the part of a professing, born-again believer in Jesus Christ. The method of Baptism we prefer is immersion (going completely under water) in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. A continuation of the Baptism method of John the Baptist, immersion was the way Jesus Himself demonstrated that His ministry had begun.
