Welcome to United City Church, where we celebrate the transformative act of baptism as a symbol of faith and unity. Our community embraces the power of baptism as a sacred ritual that represents the believer's commitment to their spiritual journey.
Baptism holds a deep significance in the Christian faith. It serves as a public declaration of one's acceptance of Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, and their desire to follow His teachings. At Eagle Church, we believe that baptism is an essential step in the believer's spiritual journey.
Baptism symbolizes the believer's identification with Jesus Christ's death, burial, and resurrection. It signifies the washing away of sins and the beginning of a new life in Christ. By participating in this act, believers express their faith and willingness to live a life dedicated to serving God.
At Eagle Church, we conduct baptism in a reverent and communal setting. The process begins with a period of preparation, where individuals meet with our pastoral team to discuss the significance and meaning of baptism. We provide guidance and support throughout this process, ensuring that each person understands the commitment they are making.
Our preparation classes delve into the biblical foundations of baptism, addressing any questions or doubts individuals may have. Through these classes, participants gain a deeper understanding of the spiritual significance behind the act of baptism, allowing them to fully embrace the experience.
The Baptism Ceremony
The baptism ceremony itself is a sacred and joyous occasion. It takes place during our regular worship services, creating a sense of unity among our congregation. As believers are immersed in water, they publicly declare their faith and commitment to United City Church.
