Jesus said, “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." - Matthew 28:19-20

As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.” - Matthew 3:16-17
Be Baptized At Venture Church
In Christian baptism, there are two requirements before a person is baptized:
- The person being baptized must have accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
- The person must understand what baptism signifies.
If a person knows the Lord Jesus as Savior, understands that Christian baptism is a step of obedience in publicly proclaiming his faith in Christ, and desires to be baptized, then there is no reason to prevent the believer from being baptized.
According to the Bible, Christian baptism is important because it is a step of obedience - publicly declaring faith in Christ and commitment to Him - an identification with Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection.
