LA IGLESIA

EL BAUTISMO

El bautismo simboliza y declara nuestra nueva fe en Cristo y nuestra confianza en su perdón. Somos sepultados en el agua para levantarnos a una nueva vida en Cristo, capacitados por el Espíritu Santo.

Por medio del bautismo confesamos nuestra fe en la muerte y resurrección de Jesucristo, y damos testimonio de nuestra muerte al pecado y de nuestro propósito de andar en novedad de vida. De este modo reconocemos a Cristo como nuestro Señor y Salvador, Ilegamos a ser su pueblo y somos recibidos como miembros de su iglesia. El bautismo es un símbolo de nuestra unión con Cristo, del perdón de nuestros pecados y de nuestra recepción del Espíritu Santo. Se realiza por inmersión en agua, y está íntimamente vinculado con una afirmación de fe en Jesús y con evidencias de arrepentimiento del pecado. Sigue a la instrucción en las Sagradas Escrituras y a la aceptación de sus enseñanzas
(Romanos 6:1-6; Colosenses 2:12-13; Hechos 16:30-33; 22:16; 2:38; Mateo 28:19-20).
