BAPTISM

What is baptism?
 
Baptism is the first act of obedience of Christian believers who want to publicly profess their personal commitment to Jesus Christ. It is the symbolic washing away of one’s old, sinful past and the rising again to live a new life God’s way. The act of baptism can be defined as an outward expression of an inward commitment.
 

When is my baptism?
 
We encourage you to invite all your relatives and friends to attend your baptism. Please show Pastor Josh your preferred date of baptism. Once confirmed you should meet with Pastor Josh at 10:30 in the church foyer on the Sunday of the scheduled baptism. He will show you your baptismal robe, changing room, and the baptismal procedure.
 
What should I wear for my baptism?
 
Come in your regular clothes and change in the dressing areas. A baptismal robe will be provided, but wear shorts and a top that will not be see-through when wet under the baptismal robe. You should bring a change of clothes to replace wet clothing after baptism, necessary toiletries, grooming utensils, etc., and a plastic bag for your wet clothes. A bath towel will be provided for you. There will be attendants there to help you.
 
What will I have to do at my baptism?
 
At the beginning of the service, Pastor Josh will briefly explain the meaning of baptism. You will wait at the top of the stairs at the baptism pool for your turn to be baptized. Our baptism assistants will tell you when to enter.
 
Pastor Josh will ask you two questions:
– Do you profess to have repented of your sins and trusted Christ alone as your savior?
– If you died tonight do you know you will spend eternity in Heaven with Christ?
 
Josh will briefly lower you just under the water, and then you can leave the baptism pool and dry off.
 
Later, in the service, you will receive your baptism certificate.

Please fill out this form if you accept Jesus as your personal Savior and Lord. You will be contacted by one of our pastors.
