Baptism is the ultimate act of going public with your faith in Christ. Not only was Jesus baptized, but He commanded His followers to be baptized by the Church. Romans 6 tells us just as Jesus has died and has been raised to life, so have you! Baptism represents the death of your old life (going under the water) and the new life Christ gave you through faith (being raised out of the water). 

why get baptized?

Baptism is an outward expression of an inward change. It symbolizes the death of our "old self" and the start of our new life in Christ. We do not believe that baptism saves anyone, but is commanded in Scripture (Matthew 28:19-20).

When Should i be baptized?

Baptism is intended to take place after someone gets saved. Baptism does not finish someone's salvation but rather is the act of letting the church and the world know that you have been saved.

What Does Baptism look like at Cheraw?

We know that Christians practice baptism in different ways, but we believe the  most biblically faithful model is to be immersed in water after you have personally  repented of your sin and trusted in Jesus for your salvation.
