SALVATION: ROMANS ROAD (Click to view)
BAPTISM: An Outward Sign of an Inward Decision
Salvation does not come from baptism. However, we do believe it is an important act of obedience. While salvation is intensely personal, it is not private. Your first "witness" to others of your salvation experience is baptism. Our practice is to do that by immersion. Usually it's scheduled when most family & friends can attend.
You may come for membership at ORBC in these ways:
By baptism (expressing desire to make ORBC your church "home" at the time of your baptism).
By letter (transferring membership from another church).
By statement (transferring membership from a church no longer in existence or where records are lost).
Usually an invitation is extended at the end of each worship service. However, the invitation is always "open"! Our pastor and other ministers would love to talk to you any time about any decision you want to make, or any questions you may have.
