clearly professing your faith
Jesus was baptized. Since then, millions of his followers have followed his example. Baptism is a way for you to do the same and participate in a common experience with Jesus followers around the world.
Baptism is a way to go public with your faith to show others that you have started a personal relationship with Jesus.
Baptism is not necessary for salvation. It symbolizes the new life you began when you started following Jesus. It symbolizes your old life dying (going under the water) and your new life (coming out of the water).
Yes, if you would like to be baptized in one of our main services.
No, if you would like to be baptized outside of our main services.
The important thing is to have a plan for how you’re going to share your story with others through your baptism, because we believe that everyone who has placed their faith in Jesus Christ has a story worth sharing.

Some churches choose to christen or baptize infants. While we recognize the right of other churches to practice infant baptism, we understand Scripture to teach that only people who have made the decision to follow Jesus should be baptized. Baptism does not make you a Christian. It shows that you already are one.
