We believe that the preponderance of biblical evidence favors believers baptism and not infant baptism - that is, baptism that follows one’s conversion, a personal decision. At the same time, we are aware that so many Bible-believing Christians see it differently. We respect their view and see this issue as one that Christians can disagree with each other on and not part ways. Our practice as a church is believer’s baptism. However, if believers in our church choose not to be baptized this way because of biblical conviction (not just convenience or tradition), then we respect their views and we enthusiastically welcome them as members. Also, we practice baptism by immersion, not sprinkling or pouring. We do not see the mode of baptism as a major issue. Even though we realize that Christians can and do disagree on many aspects of baptism, we still recognize that baptism is an important step of obedience to Jesus Christ, to symbolize that He has saved us and we are His. We also believe that baptism is not a necessary work for salvation; for it is by grace alone through faith we are saved.
