Welcoming New Believers in Baptism


This past month we celebrated the “next step” spiritually for several in the FBC Family! May 26 we had the joy of continuing our 155 year old tradition - baptizing in Salado Creek! Please affirm Ren Angell and Robert Schwindt in their walks of faith!

We believe that baptism is a public response of obedience to Jesus Christ as Lord. Although baptism does not save us, it demonstrates our recognition of the lordship of Jesus in our lives, and is a picture of the faith that we profess.

Christian baptism is the immersion of a Believer in water in the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. It is an act of obedience symbolizing the Believer’s faith in a crucified, buried, and risen Savior. It follows the example of Jesus who was baptized by immersion as He began His ministry. And it affirms a Believer’s death to sin, burial of their old life, and resurrection to walk in newness of Christ.

Baptism is a beautiful picture of what has happened to us on the inside.
Has it happened to you…?
