baptize in the dictionaryBaptism is an important part of the Christian faith. Jesus himself was baptized. It is a lifetime commitment to live your life as a Christian. If you have been baptized recently, then you probably already know this. You may be wondering what you should do next after being baptized. While there is no specific list and not just one right way, there are some things you can do to help continue your walk as a Christian.

Find a Church

If you have been baptized, chances are you are already plugged in at a church. If you aren't, you should find one as soon as possible. There are several reasons why this is important:

  • It helps you connect with people who have the same beliefs as you.
  • It gives you accountability and something to look forward to every week.
  • It's a great place to have questions answered and to have people pray for you when you are in need.

If you are in search of a church, the first thing you need to do is make sure the members have the same beliefs as you. You can often do this by checking out the church's website, having a meeting with the pastor, or attending a church service. Find one that has opportunities for you to get involved. If there are podcasts of the services available, try listening to one to see whether or not the pastor is someone you could listen to every week. Finally, try to find a church that's close to your home. While this isn't a requirement, you will be more likely to go when you don't have to worry about things like traffic or driving long distances in bad weather.

Get Involved

Once you have the right church, you need to get involved. This is one of the best ways you can meet people. There may be small groups you can join. Some of them are aimed at certain age groups or based on specific interests. This should make it easy to find the right one for you. You can also look for serving opportunities. This could be serving inside the church (such as greeting others, helping with setup, or volunteering in the children's nursery) or serving outside the church. Many churches have opportunities to help the community. Get involved and sign up when you can. Becoming engaged in these activities can help your church members become some of your closest friends.

Get a Bible

If you don't have one already, it's time to get a bible. You can download a bible app on your phone, but it's nice to have a physical copy of one as well. There are many different kinds, from a very basic bible to a study bible. Your church may give you a basic one after you are baptized. If not, it should be very easy to find one. If you already have a basic bible but want something a little more involved, you can get a study bible. There are many available, so do some research to find one that caters well to you.

Tell Your Family

If your family members weren't present at your baptism, you should be sure to tell them about it. Even if they aren't religious, they should be happy for you. This is an important part of your life, so anyone who is a significant part of your world should be aware of the decision you have made. Hopefully, they will be happy for you and receive your news well.

Baptism is an exciting and significant part of your faith. These steps can help you take your faith to the next level, and they can also help you find ways to make friends with others who have the same religious beliefs as you.
