Baptism

Why 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. Baptism is a symbol of Christ's burial and resurrection. Our entrance into the water during baptism identifies us with Christ' 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, where we bury the "old life" and rise up 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.

Adults can sign up to be baptized by completing an online form. 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.

Our next Adult Baptism will be in the spring of 2022. Let us know you want to be baptized here.

If you have any questions, contact Stephanie Edmonds.
