What is Baptism?
Simply put, baptism is an outward display and celebration of your inward decision to trust Christ with your eternity. It’s an act of obedience, a step of acknowledgment that is representative of the fact that Jesus died on the cross, was buried and walked out of the grave, alive, so each of us can have eternal life.
When you step into the water, you are letting the world know that you walked into a new life of faith in Jesus Christ and that you are committing to follow Him down a new path. If you’ve made the decision to follow Jesus, baptism is the next step in your spiritual journey.
Baptism of Children
Baptism is a very special and personal declaration of faith and it involves understanding what salvation and faith in Jesus Christ is. Because this understanding is something that comes with age and maturity, we do not conduct infant or toddler baptisms. For children of those ages, we do have an annual Child Dedication. You can find more information about that by clicking here.
The thing we ask for all parents of young children being baptized is that they ensure that the child understands that they have received salvation and this is their decision to publicly acknowledge their faith. If your child is unable to understand, we recommend waiting until they are older.
Our next baptism will take place in the Summer of 2023.
We will announce it at church and update this page when we set the exact date and open signups.
