The practice of baptism is as old as the church, originating in the Gospels, when Jesus Himself was baptized in the River Jordan by John the Baptist. Early Christians were baptized, and the practice has continued through the ages to the present time.
We at BCC hold to the tradition of believer baptism for those who have committed to Christ as their Lord and Savior receiving new birth in Christ. This position stresses the sequence of hearing, repenting, and believing as the act of new birth. It is symbolic of the death, burial and resurrection of Christ. This leads to baptism as the outward sign of the inner new birth of the believer. In baptism the believer makes public, often by immersion, the witness to this conversion and a pledge of his or her discipleship.
Buffalo Covenant Church practices both believer (adult) baptism and infant baptism. Believer baptism is scheduled once each year during the summer. Infant baptisms occur as needed throughout the year. If you want to know more, or are interested in baptism, please call (763-682-1470) or e-mail the Church Office to make an appointment with a Pastor.
