Baptism is an important step in your spiritual journey and is the best way for you to identify yourself as a follower of Jesus Christ. Like a wedding ring, baptism outwardly expresses a change that has occurred in your heart. It identifies us with Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection.
Going under the water symbolizes that you are putting to death and burying your old self as it was before choosing Christ. It is also a reminder of what Jesus did for us when He died on the cross for our sins and was buried.
When you come up out of the water it symbolizes your “re-birth” to live a new life as a forgiven child of God. It is also a reminder that Jesus conquered death by being raised from the dead. His resurrection shows His power and authority to forgive our sins and to fulfill the promises He made.
Each month, Baptism Celebrations happen as a part of our weekly worship service, where we take time to celebrate the life change that each baptism represents. For kids, we offer a Baptism Class for Kids available to teach your kids about this important step in their faith.
1 Corinthians 15:3-4 | I passed on to you what was most important and what had also been passed on to me. Christ died for our sins, just as the Scriptures said. He was buried, and he was raised from the dead on the third day, just as the Scriptures said.

We want baptism to be a memorable and meaningful decision that is made by your child. So, our Family Life Team takes the time to go over baptism in our Family Life Baptism Class and sit down for a one-on-one conversation with your child. This gives us an opportunity to meet you, hear your child’s heart, ensure they understand baptism, and allow you to ask any questions.
Baptism Classes are required for children and students who are in the 4th-8th grade and are ready to take their next step and be baptized.
Have questions or want to schedule your baptism?
We’d love to help you with that!
