Get Baptized

Baptism is a public expression of your inward relationship with Jesus. It’s the biblical next step after salvation, and it communicates to the community around you that you’re committed to following Him.

What We Believe

  • Baptism is an act of obedience to the command of Christ (and follows His example).
  • Baptism symbolizes the spiritual cleansing through divine forgiveness and the newness of life experienced by believers by virtue of their identification with Christ in his death and resurrection.
  • Baptism provides an opportunity for believers to make a formal profession of their faith before the church.
  • Baptism initiates new Christians into the church.

How We Baptize

At Fellowship Dallas, we baptize people by immersion because of its biblical symbolism of Christ’s death and resurrection, and because it is the biblical model throughout the New Testament (the Greek word baptizo literally means “to dip or immerse.”) However, the Bible does not mandate a method. Therefore, previous believer’s baptism is valid whether it was by immersion or sprinkling.

We also believe in public baptism services. Because baptism is an opportunity to testify to God’s salvation and ongoing work in a believer’s life, we value celebrating together as a church family.
