Christian Baptism is an outward display of an inward commitment. At Roxbury, baptism may be offered in a public service or small group where we immerse people into water to symbolically display the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus (Romans 6:3-5).
· It is a personal declaration, “I choose to follow Christ in the way He loved God and served people.”
· It is an expression of hope, “My old ways are gone! I live a new life because of what Christ has done for me and what His Spirit will do in me!”
· It is a joyous time where people celebrate the salvation of God as a family in God.
At Roxbury we encourage every person who is a believer to be baptized. If you have put your faith in Jesus and have not been baptized or were baptized as an infant prior to understanding your decision, we would encourage you to take this step of faith and obedience.
We believe children are a gift from God. As parents, being a part of a loving church family can help you raise your children to know that they are loved by the LORD. Throughout scripture we see the practice of parents presenting their children to the LORD for God's blessing (Luke 2:22, Mark 10:13). Of course, this act does not ensure the salvation of a child, but it is a powerful declaration before the LORD and the wider church family of the parents' intent to train and teach their children to follow Jesus.
