Baptism is an important step of obedience that shows others we have personally trusted Jesus for our salvation. Jesus was baptized when He was on the earth, and we do this to follow His example. When Christians are baptized, they are submerged under water to identify with the death and burial of Jesus and raised out of the water to identify with His resurrection. We believe that water baptism is a public declaration of three important things: you are a follower of Jesus Christ, you are beginning a changed life in Christ, and you are part of a new family.
Please bring a towel and a change of clothes for your baptism. We encourage you to invite as many friends and family that you want to be a part of this special day. I will encourage them at the appropriate time to move up to the baptismal area. If you have children back in a classroom who you would like to be apart of this special occasion, make sure you have their sticker so you can pick them up from their classroom.
