What is baptism?
We believe that water baptism is a gift that God gives to all those who decide to follow Jesus. Baptism is an ancient tradition of the Christian church, and we see in scripture that Jesus Himself was baptized at the start of His ministry (Mark 1:9), and that He tells His church to baptize all who follow Him (Matthew 28:19). We believe that baptism gives us a way to witness to our faith, a way to connect with God and say “Yes” to Him, and it joins us to the church worldwide, and locally in our community. It is a wonderful celebration, rich in meaning and a special moment in the life of a Christian.
Who can get baptized at this church?
We offer baptism to those who have decided to follow Jesus and are ready to make a public commitment to this end. Older children and youth are welcome to be baptized.
If you have been baptized in another church or community, or as a child, we recognize that baptism, but we do offer a special ceremony for those who would like to re-dedicate themselves to God, or affirm their baptism.
If you are interested in baptism or re-dedication, please contact the church office and the relevant staff member will connect with you.
