Unlike most evangelical churches in North America, baptism is tremendously significant among the saints of God and the secular culture in Eastern Europe. When one identifies with Jesus Christ through the ordinance of baptism, he is publicly declaring that he has died to the old life. From that day forward he openly bears the name repenter, which is a fitting title for those who are new creatures in Christ. Often they are publicly scorned, reproached and alienated by their relatives and church.
Some churches will not permit a person who has made a profession of belief in Christ to be baptized until they have evidenced credible proof that they are genuinely born again. A person who maintains a practice of carnal indulgences is refused believer’s baptism.
