Some people say we are "bapticostal" jokingly. But it is true in the reguard that both Baptist and Pentecostal feel comfortable there. We preach and teach that the only way to heaven is by excepting Jesus as your savior, repenting of your sins and believing that Jesus gave himself to be crucified for payment of our sins and rose again on the 3rd day.
We also have the very best praise and worship in our area. That statement maybe opinion but its shared by a lot of people.
Come worship with us this Sunday morning at 10:45. God Bless and hope to see you there.

I attend there from time to time and this statement is far from true. And on another note..you don't go to church for others. Your there for your relationship with God so everyone else shouldn't matter

Baptism isn't a requirement to get into heaven, its just a way to publicly show that you have been saved and are becoming a servant of God by symbolically washing away your sins.

Mark 15:16 seems to indicate that baptism is needed for salvation.

I would like to encourage you to do a more thorough study of baptism. Every time baptism is mentioned in scripture it comes before or in conjunction with salvation. There is no example in the new testament where repentant believers waited to get a group together for a baptismal service. The statement that you just made regarding baptism cannot be found in the Bible.

I agree with Pastor Steve. We should all desire to be baptized, once we are saved but it is not required. Jesus told the repented thief on the cross that today they would be in paradise together. If baptism is required then why go to a dying man in the hospital to lead him to The Lord? He can not be Baptized. God is Just and Merciful, it is his will that none should parish but all be saved. Therefore, I can not believe that God would take away the final chance for one to choose Jesus. That's my belief and my convictions.
But this topic is about the Vineyard, it's a great church with great people. Not Perfect by any means but what church is. It has people from all walks of life. From the unemployed to the very wealthy. It is very accepting of people just as they are. They don't try to "fix" you. They let you find God and he does the fixing. I go there every time I'm in town for service. Check it out. I hear its growing fast.

Let's talk about the baptism one more time. When Jesus was dying on the cross and he was speaking to the thief beside him, did he get down and baptis him? No. How did he go to heaven then if it's a requirement? Just wondering.

In response to Curious Believer and Wooly b - Baptism was not a requirement under the law of Moses, and the thief lived and died under the old law. The death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ ushered in the christian age. You can read about the establishment of the church in Acts 2. Study through the book of Acts. Do what those people did, and the Lord will add you to His church.

The ten commandments is also under the old law, but we are required to follow them, right? Not gonna argue with you but your wrong. You do not have to be baptized to go to heaven just like you don't have to speak in tounges or get filled with the holy ghost as some believe. Just think if you had been born in Iraq or other middle eastern countries you would think Allah was your god it's just whatever a person is raised to believe in most cases. The only way a person will ever know who's right is when it's too late

Wooly b, thanks for your comments. I truly believe that our position on any Biblical subject should be based on scripture, so no we are not required to follow the ten commandment law because it was part of the old law that was taken out of the way at Jesus' death (Col. 2:14, Eph. 2:15) However, nine of the ten commandments are repeated in the New Testament for us to follow, so we are to follow them. We are not required to remember the sabbath day and keep it holy. We also do not sacrifice animals as those under the old law did. The Old Testament is very important to us as Christians (Rom 15:4), but we cannot find out how to go to heaven from it. Also, about baptism: it washes away our sins (Acts 22:16), it puts us into Christ (Gal. 3:27, Rom. 6:3), it is for forgiveness of sins (Acts 2:38), and belief+baptism saves (Mark 16:16). Can you go to heaven without having your sins washed away, being in Christ, being forgiven of sins, or being saved? God bless you in your studies of God's holy word.

It would appear that you have spent much time in the study of God's word.You have indeed reached tha right conclusion on the subject of baptism.

With the conclusion stated by sincerely, it would seem that salvation is not available to the dying in the hospital or the car crash victim or just a person about to breathe their last breathe because they can not be baptized. I do agree that we as Christians should try to be as Christ and as he was Baptized by John we should also be baptized. It is a public display of our death of the sinful man and the resurrection of the new Christ cleansed man. With that being said, I also believe that God is the only judge of our salvation. He is the only one that sees into our heart and knows its true desire. I believe that God is merciful and shows much grace even though we do not deserve it.

Therefore, I plead with all my brothers and sisters in Christ please be Baptized as our savior was do it quickly as the jailer of Paul and Silas did in Acts. It is important. But please pray with those that have not accepted Christ yet even until their final breathe. Even if they can not be baptized or walk an isle to the front of the church. God will decide their fate and the completion of their salvation. I pray that all will call upon the name of Jesus and be saved. I will not question God, on the day I enter heaven, as to who he allowed in. I will rejoice with all that are there.
