Baptismal Confession of Faith

The baptism of believers upon their confession of faith is a significant component of Anabaptist theology.  This is an example of the confession of faith that should accompany baptism.  

I believe in one true, eternal, and almighty God, who is the Creator and Preserver of all visible and invisible things.

I believe in Jesus Christ, as the only begotten Son of God, that He is the only Savior of mankind, that He died upon the cross, and gave Himself as a ransom for my sins, that through Him I might have eternal life.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, which proceeds from the Father and the Son; that He is an abiding Comforter, sanctifies the hearts of men, and guides them into all truth.

I am truly sorry for my past sins, and willingly renounce Satan, the world, and all works of darkness and my own carnal will and sinful desires.

I promise by the grace of God and the aid of the Holy Spirit to submit myself to Christ and His Word, and to faithfully abide in the same until death.
