Baptism

Who should be baptized?

At PREFC, we practice believers baptism by immersion. Those who have repented of their sins and are trusting in Jesus Christ alone, and are ready to publicly identify with Christ and profess their allegiance to Him should be baptized.


Why should I be baptized?

1. Jesus instituted water baptism for the church (Matthew 28:19-20).

2. The early church commanded the people to repent and be baptized (Acts 2:38).

3. Baptism is an act of obedience to the commands of Christ.

4. To publicly identify with Christ and visibly display the inward change.


When does PREFC perform baptisms?

Our baptismal service has been held at Raccoon River Bible Camp in the summer.

If you are interested in baptism, please contact Pastor Chaun.
