WHAT IS BAPTISM?
We are saved through faith in Jesus Christ, which is demonstrated by confessing with one’s mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believing in one’s heart that God raised Him from the dead. (Romans 10:9). Baptism is an outward symbol of an inward commitment to Christ. While we are not saved through baptism, we are commanded to be baptized according to Matthew 28:19.
WHO IS A CANDIDATE FOR BAPTISM?
Christians age five to adult are eligible for baptism. Infants and children age four and younger are eligible for Baby Dedication.
WHEN IS BAPTISM HELD?
Check the Sunday bulletin or the church website to find out when the next baptism service will be scheduled.
WHAT TIME DO I ARRIVE?
Check in at the Welcome Center on the day of baptism at 9:30 am. They will direct you to the baptism class that begins promptly at 9:45am. The class will dismiss in time for you to attend the 10:30am service. Report to the fellowship hall to change and prepare for baptism, no later than 11:45 am.
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?
Come dressed in a solid, dark colored: underclothes, socks, t-shirt and sweatpants (loose fitting). These are the clothes you will be baptized in, so be sure they are items that you are okay with being submerged in water. If you would like, you may bring a solid white or clear shower cap. Also, bring with you a set of underclothes and other garments. You will change into those items after your baptism is complete.
