Baptism

At Mims Baptist Church we practice believers baptism. The Bible instructs that baptism takes place after one has placed their faith in Jesus for their salvation. Baptism is the public commitment that a person makes that Jesus is Lord.  The Bible says that all professing Christians should be baptized (Matthew 28:18-20). Whether you've been following Jesus for a long time and never got baptized or are a new Christian, we would be honored to baptize you!
Why Should You Be Baptized?
Baptism is necessary for Christian obedience, and is vital to growth in your Christian walk. We are encouraged to keep Christ’s commandments through baptism:
  1. By the example of Christ.
  2. By the encouragement of New Testament believers. (Acts 8:26–38)
  3. By the explanation of Scripture. (Romans 6:4–5)
How Should You Be Baptized?
Baptism is by immersion after salvation and is done in obedience to Jesus Christ’s command. It is a picture of our identification with Christ through His death, burial and resurrection.
Who Should Be Baptized?
  1. Baptism is a public declaration of the believer’s personal faith in Christ.
  2. Baptism is a perfect illustration of what Christ did for sinners on the Cross through His death, burial and Resurrection.
  3. Baptism is a personal identification between Christ and His Church.
