Frequently Asked Questions
1. Why should I be water baptized?
If you have put your faith in Jesus Christ, the next thing the Bible tells us to do is be water baptized. (Matthew 28:18-20) The old you is symbolically buried in the water and the new you is raised up, just as Christ was raised from the dead. (Romans 6:4; Col. 2:12)
2. When should I be water baptized?
In the Bible, water baptism always follows a confession of faith. This is best known as believer’s baptism. We don’t believe water baptism saves you. We believe you are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ alone. Water baptism demonstrates your relationship with Jesus through his death, burial, and resurrection (Romans 6:1-4).
3. How do I know if my child is ready to be water baptized?
While every child is different, we do believe there are a few things you can do to ensure your child is ready. First, look for external signs based on their inward decision. This is a great way for the church to partner with your family. Second, ask one of our leaders in Children’s Ministry to speak with your child about their decision to follow Jesus. The truth is attitudes and actions follow the heart. When the heart is made new, things happen.
4. When and where do I get water baptized?
As a church, we want to celebrate with you as you make one of the most important decisions in your life. Therefore, water baptisms are facilitated by one of our pastors during worship at the beginning of our weekend service. This allows you to sit with family and friends after water baptism in the same service.
