Baptism

Baptism is an important step of obedience that shows others we have personally trusted Jesus for our salvation. Jesus was baptized when He was on the earth, and we do this to follow His example.

When Christians are baptized, they are submerged under water to identify with the death and burial of Jesus and raised out of the water to identify with His resurrection.

We believe that water baptism is a public declaration of three important things: you are a follower of Jesus Christ, you are beginning a changed life in Christ, and you are part of a new family.

We are very happy that you want to follow the Lord’s example in baptism.

  1. The first step to being water baptized is to be a follower of Jesus. You can attend Step One of the Growth Track, where you will learn what it means to follow Jesus. Click here for more info on The Growth Track. Please call the office for more information about getting baptized. We will send you information about a quick meeting before your baptism where the meaning of baptism will be explained and you will be shown how you will be baptized. 
  2. Invite your friends and family to join you! There’s plenty of room in the sanctuary around the baptistery for your friends and family to celebrate your baptism with you. Don’t be surprised when people clap at your baptism.  It is a happy experience for every Christian when someone identifies himself as a believer by being baptized
