profession of faith
If you’ve been to Macon Road, you know that this is our favorite word because we're about to celebrate life change with you and your church family family. Baptism is outwardly professing your faith in Jesus Christ and communicating to the world your commitment to following Him. Because Jesus professed His love for us, we should profess our love for Him. It’s the next step after salvation.
Baptism does not save you; it’s an outward act of obedience and a symbol of salvation (1 Peter 3:21). It’s a public declaration of how Jesus changed your life. Being baptized shows others that you’ve decided to follow Jesus and allows them to celebrate this decision with you (Acts 16:31-34).
When Christians are baptized, they are placed under water to identify with the death and burial of Jesus, and then raised out to identify with His resurrection. The power that brought Jesus back to life is the same power He uses to change our lives – and that’s what gets us so excited!
When you get baptized at Macon Road or Highpoint, you'll have the opportunity to tell your story and allow others to see God’s transforming power in your life.
