what is baptism?

Baptism is the church’s proclamation that we are who we are because God chose us, loves us, and calls us into his kingdom. In Baptism, we participate in Jesus’s death and resurrection by dying to what separates us from God and by being raised to newness of life in Christ. Baptism is an act of obedience that allows you to make a public declaration of your faith, declaring that you have given the steering wheel of your life to God. Baptism is not a condition of salvation, but rather a response to the redemption and love of Jesus. This is an important step in your journey as a follower of Christ, and an outward symbol of the work God has already done in your life.

If you want to make your relationship with Jesus public, fill out the baptism form below to sign up for the next opportunity to be baptized! We offer a short baptism class and do baptisms throughout the year. If you prefer to be sprinkled with water instead of full immersion, we can arrange to do that as part of an upcoming worship service. If you want to be fully immersed then we will arrange a time to do baptisms when we have multiple people interested and signed up. Letting us know you want to be baptized by filling out an interest form is the first step!
