Baptism at COS
Here at COS we place a high value on Baptism.
We believe that baptism is the response to the command of Christ. It is the first step a person should take after trusting in Christ for salvation. It is an outward symbol of an inward work. It shows our repentance from sin, death to our old self, and rising again with Christ in a New Life.
Not only that, but we also see baptism as a “watermark”. It marks in our minds and hearts, along with our church and community that we now belong to a different kingdom, a different family. That would be the Kingdom of Heaven and the Family of God. We are saying that we are now part of something bigger and better than this world.
