Very regularly at LPBC, people who have trusted in Christ as Lord and Savior make a public declaration of their faith in Jesus through believer’s baptism. Baptism is you saying to the whole world, “I am a follower of Jesus Christ!” Baptism does not save a person, but baptism is important as an act of obedience to Jesus.
We believe baptism is an act of obedience to the example and command of Jesus.
By being baptized, you identify with the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus and give testimony of your own new life in Christ.
At LPBC we baptize by immersion (fully-immersed in water). Perhaps you are interested in talking with us more about being baptized. If so, please contact our church office or one of our pastors and we will be happy to answer your questions. In the spring and summer, people are baptized in the lake (Lake Placid). During the fall and winter, people are baptized in the baptistry at the front of the sanctuary.
