Christ commands all of his children to be baptized. Therefore, it is not optional. (Matthew 28:19-20). At Calvary, we do not believe that baptism saves you or washes away your sin. Rather, it is a symbol or a picture of what happened to you at salvation (Romans 6:1-10). Therefore, we practice baptism by immersion because it best pictures what happens to us at salvation. If you have not been baptized following your salvation, please sign up for it when it is offered on Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends.
Communion or Lord’s Supper
Christ commands all believers to partake of communion. Therefore, it is not optional. (Matthew 26:17-30). Communion does not save you, but serves as a symbol to remind us of the death of Christ. We celebrate communion on the first Sunday of each month.
