What is the significance of Baptism?
Baptism declares that you are a follower of Jesus Christ. It is a public confession of your faith in, and commitment to, Jesus Christ. It is the next step after repentance and saving faith, and it is an important foundation for the Christian life. Baptism is a symbol of Christ’s burial and resurrection. Our entrance into the water during baptism identifies us with Christ’s death on the cross, His burial in the tomb, and His resurrection from the dead. It is a symbol of your new life as a Christian, in which we are burying the “old life” and rising to walk in a “new life”!
Who Should Be baptized?
Every person who has made the decision to believe in Christ! Whether it happens as a sign of a new believer or you are rededicating yourself to following Jesus, water baptism is a significant moment in the life of a believer. It’s an opportunity to declare to the world, your friends, and your family that you have decided to follow Jesus. It’s a reason to celebrate!
How do I get baptized at Faithbridge?
We consider it a privilege to join with you as you publicly share that you’ve been brought from death to life in Jesus Christ.
Adults can apply to be baptized by completing an online application. This information is helpful to our team as you move forward in the process. We will then contact you, share the upcoming baptism dates, and answer any questions you have. Baptisms are celebrated at a host home, and you are encouraged to invite your family and friends to celebrate with you.

Students interested in being baptized can sign up to receive more information. Upon signing up, students will be contacted by us to schedule a short "baptism meeting" with an FSM staff member. At the baptism meeting, we'll cover all the details you and your family will need to prep for an awesome day of worship, celebration, and baptism!
