Go all in.

Baptism is the way a new believer tells the world, "I belong to Jesus." Whether you’re a new believer or have been a Christian for a while but have never been baptized, we would love to help you take this next step of faith and first step of obedience in your journey with Christ.

Schedule your baptism.

  • On the day of your baptism, arrive and check-in with Guest Services in the Main Foyer at least 30 minutes before the service begins.
  • We will have a t-shirt for you to wear during your baptism and is yours to keep!
  • Bring dark shorts and any personal items you might need. We provide towels and plastic bags for wet clothes.

Go all in.

Romans 6:1-15, teaches us that the Christian is supposed to go through a similar experience to what Jesus went through in His death, burial, and resurrection. The difference is that Jesus died physically and actually came back to life; we’re to die to our sin, self, and old ways and then rise again to live a holy life through the power of the Holy Spirit.

Baptism is an outward symbol of an inner change and transformation that has taken place beforehand. It’s very important to emphasize the fact that this can only be accomplished through the power and strength of Jesus! It’s not that we have to completely overcome sin before we can be baptized, but we need to repent of our past sins and have our mind made up that we want to overcome sin, as we trust God to give us the victory.

In the same way that Jesus went down into the grave, we go down into the water of baptism, which represents our death to sin and the burial of our old life.
“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” (2 Corinthians 5:17)

Sin needs to “die” and “pass away” in our life and let the Holy Spirit take its place. This doesn’t mean that we’ll never sin again, but like Paul said, “...we should no longer be slaves of sin”. We should “...reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord. Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts.” Sin will no longer dominate or control our lives and we will strive to “be holy even as He is holy” (1 Peter 1:15-16), as the Lord works in us “both to will and to do His good pleasure.” (Philippians 2:13)
