Baptism

Following the Lord Jesus in baptism

What is baptism? It's a public declaration that you are a follower of Jesus Christ. Going under the water and coming up out of it symbolizes the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus. It's an important way to identify with the death Jesus died in your place and the resurrection to new life that He offers you. Baptism is the natural next step for the person who has committed his or her life to Christ, loves the Lord and wants to follow His example in being baptized. It's also an act of obedience to the Lord.

We usually offer baptism a couple of times a year; the next opportunity is on Sunday, Jan. 23.  If you would like to be baptized, please click the button to let us know—and also plan to attend a short baptism class with Pastor Tom on Saturday, Jan. 22, from 9 to 10 am.
