Water baptism is a time of celebration and public declaration of new life in Christ. Bring your friends and family with you to the Worship Service so you can celebrate together.
What is Baptism?
Water baptism is a public declaration of three important things:
1. You are a follower of Jesus Christ
2. You are beginning a changed life in Christ
3. And, you are part of a new family.
We believe that baptism is an important next step in your relationship with Jesus. Water baptisms take place after the 11:30 am service on the first Sundays of the month. Please click the link below to register.

You should wear dark colored T-shirt or sweatshirt, sweatpants and socks (wearing a swim cap is optional). Bring a towel and a change of clothes with you. See the examples below for a reference.
THE DAY OF
On the day of the Baptism, you will check in at the Baptism table located in the foyer beginning at 11:00 am (parents/guardians will need to check in youth (ages 5 to 17). If you are providing your own clothing, wear your baptism attire to the worship service and you may leave your change of clothes with our Baptism Staff to be tagged and stored in our Baptism staging area. After you check-in, you may proceed to the sanctuary to be seated by our ushers for the 11:30 am worship service (you and your guests may sit anywhere in the sanctuary).

During the 11:30 am service an announcement will be made for baptism candidates to come to the front of the sanctuary for a special prayer from our Pastors and to receive brief instructions for the Baptism. During the Baptism Service, you will be called by name to be baptized. Friends and family will have an opportunity to gather around the baptism pool to witness the baptism of their loved one.
