Baptism is one of two ordinances we observe at Hill Country Bible Church Austin, the other being communion. We believe the Bible teaches that each person who has placed their faith in Jesus Christ should publicly declare their commitment to Him through baptism (Acts 2:41 and 8:12).
- Symbolizes Christ's burial and resurrection (Colossians 2:12)
- Represents our death to sin through the blood of Jesus Christ and our new life in Him (Romans 6:3-4)
- Was modeled for us and instructed to us by Jesus (Mark 1:9; Matthew 28:19)
