Water Baptism

Deciding to Follow Jesus

One of Jesus' commands was for His followers to be water baptized. Jesus Himself was baptized by John the Baptist as He started His earthly ministry. Come follow Him in His footsteps as you publicly proclaim your faith in Jesus!

Who should be baptized? Anyone (and everyone!) who has made the decision to follow Jesus and accept the free gift of salvation he offers.

When does someone get baptized? Scripture talks about being baptized after a person repents (turns from sin) and receives salvation. There's no timeline and certainly no expiration date on when to be baptized. The most important part is that it's based on your decision to follow Jesus.

Why choose to be baptized? Being baptized is an act of faith and obedienceBaptism doesn't make you any more saved; it's a public expression of your newfound faith. It's identifying with the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus, symbolizing the promise that the old is gone and the new is here. 

How do I get baptized? We have baptisms several times a year, in the baptistery tank in our building. It is a full-immersion experience, where you go fully under the water, just like we read in scripture. It's a time of celebration and we'd love to be a part of it! 

For scripture references regarding baptism see: Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 2:37-39; Romans 6:4-5: Matthew 3:13-17

Upcoming Dates 

March 27 & 28, 2021

In order to provide a meaningful experience for each person being baptized while minimizing the risks associated with COVID-19, we are limiting the number of people being baptized in each service. In addition, we are asking that those in the tank helping to baptize wear a mask; those being baptized do not need to wear a mask. 

Can my child be baptized?

Yes! Worship Center baptizes children who are of age to comprehend what it means to accept Christ as their Savior and the essential step that water baptism is in their Christian walk.

We offer a class called Taking the Plunge designed for students in grades 2-4. This multi-session class takes place during a Sunday service for 4 consecutive weeks and covers foundational biblical truths, the significance of being baptized, and the practical steps involved.
