Baptism F.A.Q. & Sign-Up

1. What do I wear?

We ask that you wear gray sweat pants and a loose fitting white (or off-white) t-shirt. We will provide a top  covering for your clothes. Also, you will need to bring a change of clothes.

2. What happens if I didn’t answer yes to all of the fields on the baptism form?

If you didn’t respond to all four prerequisite questions, a member of our leadership team or pastoral staff will contact you and address any questions you may have regarding water baptism.

3. Can I invite my family or friends?

Absolutely!!! As a matter of fact, we encourage you to do so.

4. What other things do I need to consider?

Women may desire to wear a swim cap to protect their hair. Also, participants who wear contact lenses may want to take them out prior to service; however, doing so is not necessary.

    • With Salvation: We accept Jesus’ death, burial & resurrection to accept Him as our Lord and Saviour.

    • With Baptism: We are identified with what He did.

    • We go through the process of what He did to symbolically say the following:

      • As you stand in the water:

        • We Stand as “dead” to the old life and world

      • As you go under the water:

        • We Immerse (Go Under) to signify the burial of the dead person

      • As we come out of the water:

        • We Rise Up (Come out the water) to walk in the newness of life!

          My Understanding:

          • This is a
            sign of repentence (turning from my old ways).

          • This will symbolize a new start for me.
