Every week people from the La Sierra community gather to study the Bible, develop friendships, pursue wholeness, and share life together. We believe that, as a community and individuals, God is calling us to participate in God's unfolding story of love, rescue, resurrection, and restoration. Therefore we read the Bible to get to know the God who loves us; to learn from the stories and experiences of others; to discover the history of our origins; to be amazed by prophecy; to gain insight on how to live our lives; and to read God's many promises that give us hope, peace and confidence in Jesus Christ today.
“In study we also strive to see the Word of God at work in the lives of others, in the church, history, and in nature. We not only read and hear and inquire, but we meditate on what comes before us, that is, we withdraw into silence where we prayerfully and steadily focus upon it. In this way its meaning for us can emerge and form us as God works in it the depths of our heart, mind and soul.” Dallas Willard, The Spirit of the Disciplines

Baptism is an important step in your journey as a follower of Christ and an outward symbol of the work He has already done in your life. The Bible paints a beautiful picture of baptism as our identification with Jesus in His death, burial, and resurrection. When you make the decision to accept Christ as your Savior, the Bible says that your old way of life is dead, and you are beginning a new life with Christ.
Accepting Christ as your Savior means you believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross for your sins and that by His death and bodily resurrection, He bridged the gap between you and God for all time. If you have come to this point in your spiritual journey, you are ready to be baptized. At La Sierra University, our campus family comes together on this special occasion to celebrate your commitment to your new life in Christ.
"Or have you forgotten that when we became Christians and were baptized to become one with Christ Jesus, we died with Him? For we died and were buried with Christ by baptism. And just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious power of the Father, now we also may live new lives." Romans 6:3-4
