Baptismal Service

For the next few weeks we are looking to facilitate Baptism for those interested. We ask that if you desire to be baptized or know someone who does please let us know by Friday so that we can be prepared to serve them.

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.
