The Bible clearly teaches that baptism is the first step of obedience after surrendering to Christ: “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins” (Acts 2:38). Baptism allows a believer to communicate to the world their heart-felt commitment to Christ. It shows that they have decided to put Christ at the center of their life, after coming into life-changing relationship with Him. Baptism is an outward picture of what has already taken place on the inside of a person. Being baptized does not make you right with God, but it shows others that you have already trusted in what Christ did for you on the cross. Like a wedding ring in marriage, the action of baptism is a symbol of a commitment made, a declaration to others of the love and devotion you have for Christ.

Sign up for Baptism
After you have signed up for a baptism date and service time (below), you’ll be added to a list for that date. Specific details will follow as the date approaches.
If your child (age 8-12) is interested in baptism, after sign-up, you’ll be contacted to schedule a pre-baptism interview with one of our Grace Kids ministry team. If your child has a clear understanding of what baptism is, we can place them on our schedule for a baptism date.
If you have a middle school or high school age student who wishes to take this step, they’ll be contacted by one of our student ministry pastors for an interview prior to being confirmed for a baptism date.
