In Christ, we are raised to life! If you have accepted Jesus as your Savior, your next step is to follow Christ’s example and “go public” with your faith through baptism. As your church family, we love to celebrate this special moment with you!
Baptism is a way to follow Christ's example and "go public" with your faith. While the action of baptism does not "save" you, it's a way to communicate with the world what Christ has done in your life - an outward expression of an inward change.
Who Should Be Baptized?
The Bible teaches that every Believer in Christ should be baptized. A Believer is someone who has realized that their sin separated them from God. They have given up all efforts to reach God through good works or religious activity. They have concluded that Jesus Christ’s death on the cross for their sins is the only thing that can bridge the gap between them and God. A Believer is someone who has decided to trust Christ alone for their salvation. (Acts 2:41; 8:12-13)

How is it Done?
While modifications are sometimes made to accommodate people with physical limitations, we baptize by immersion because that is the mode we see displayed in the Bible. Immersion means the Believer is placed under the water representing their old life of sin is gone and they are lifted up out of the water to display that the same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead has given them new life too. (Matthew 3:16, Acts 8:38-39, Romans 6:1-11)
Is there an Age Requirement?
No, there is not a set age requirement. However, we encourage families with young children to meet with a member of our pastoral team before signing up for baptism. This will give the family an opportunity to ensure that their child has an understanding of their faith and that they can fully appreciate the importance of their decision to get baptized. Seeing our children and youth take the step of baptism is a primary goal for our family ministry team.
