So you want to get baptized . . .

Congratulations! If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you are ready to be baptized. Your baptism is a wonderful opportunity to show others that you have accepted Christ and have a relationship with him.

There are two reasons you should be baptized:

Obedience

In Matthew 28:19, Jesus instructed us to be baptized as an act of obedience. Jesus himself was baptized! We want to follow his example and honor his guidance. While baptism is not necessary for salvation, it demonstrates submission to God.

Identification

Just as a name tag lets everyone know your name, baptism identifies you as a Christian. It’s a public way to celebrate that your sins have been cleansed and to announce you are in a relationship with Christ.

What is baptism?

Jesus was baptized. Since then, millions of his followers have followed his example.

Baptism is a way for you to do the same and participate in a common experience with Jesus followers around the world.

Baptism is a way to go public with your faith to show others that you have started a personal relationship with Jesus.

Baptism is not necessary for salvation. It symbolizes the new life you began when you started following Jesus. It symbolizes your old life dying (going under the water) and your new life (coming out of the water).

Where can I be baptized?

You can be baptized during one of our services on a Sunday.


You can be baptized at 12:30 p.m. on a Sunday that works for you and for us.


You need to go under the water, so a pool, the ocean, or a lake would work great. We can help you find the right location.

What about infant baptism/christening?

Some churches choose to christen or baptize infants. While we recognize the right of other churches to practice infant baptism, we understand Scripture to teach that only people who have made the decision to follow Jesus should be baptized. Baptism does not make you a Christian. It shows that you already are one.
