To see God's love reach the hearts of all people

Baptism is an outward expression of your newly found hope in Christ, community with others, and the beginning of an incredible journey. The Bible shows us that Water Baptism is a public declaration of your faith in Jesus Christ, as it symbolizes what God is doing in your heart - making you new.

Frequently asked questions

More about Baptism?

Baptism is an outward expression of what you have already decided in your heart. In Matthew 3:13 16, Jesus set the example for us by being baptized to fulfill all righteousnes. It is a statement of commitment (Romans 10:9-10) and serves as a public statement to tell others that we have surrendered our lives to Christ and that we believe in Him. Through baptism, we are declaring to the world that we belong to Christ and He is our Lord and Savior. Baptism is a symbol of the death, burial and resurrection of Christ (Romans 6:3-11). Just as Christ gave His life for us and died, in making a decision to follow Christ, the person we were prior to becoming a follower of Christ is also dead. Modeling how Christ was buried and then resurrected from death, baptism shows our death to sin, being washed clean and now raised to walk in our new life in Christ.

Does Baptism have to do with Baptism in the Holy Spirit?

In short, based on what the Bible shows us, Water Baptism is a public declaration of faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. This is different than Baptism in the Holy Spirit with evidence of speaking in other tongues. For more info, checkout this Bible App reading plan to learn more about Baptism. Tap Here

Can kids be Baptized?

Yes! We believe there is no Jr. Holy Spirit or a little version of God for our kids. We encourage parents to show their kids what a relationship with God is and what water baptism means (a public declaration of faith in Jesus). When a child can comprehend and understand what salvation is, and if they are wanting to make the decision to follow Christ, water baptism is for them too.
