What is Baptism?
If you have recently decided to follow Jesus or rededicate your relationship with God, water baptism is your next step in your faith journey. As an outward expression of your inward decision to let your old life die so you can be raised to new life with Christ, water baptism is a significant moment that will serve as a reminder that the old is gone and the new has come!
How do I get baptized?
Once you register for water baptism, you are required to attend an in-person baptism class where we make sure you understand the decision you’re making and interview you to record your story for why you’re deciding to go public with your faith in Jesus Christ. With your permission, we share your story on baptism Sunday so that your church family can celebrate with you as you shout your story!
“And that water is a picture of baptism, which now saves you, not by removing dirt from your body, but as a response to God from a clean conscience. It is effective because of the resurrection of Jesus Christ.”

While we do not sprinkle babies, we do follow the Biblical example of baby dedications, whereby a parent makes a free will decision to dedicate their child unto the Lord and makes a covenant before the Lord and his/her church family to raise their child in the ways of the Lord as outlined by the Bible and to love the Lord with all their heart, soul, mind and strength. We host child dedication services regularly. If you would like to register for our next child/baby dedication, please use the button below.
