What is Baptism and Why?

Baptism is an outward expression of the inward change that comes from knowing and choosing to follow Christ. It is a picture of how Christ has changed someone’s life.  It symbolized the death of our “old self” and the start of a new life through following Jesus.

Baptism is the ultimate act of going public and telling the world about your faith in following Christ.  Jesus was not only baptized but He also commanded his followers to be baptized.  If you tell us your interest in baptism, we will do the rest.  A pastor will contact you to set up a personal meeting to answer any questions you may have.  We will do the same with a child or student to ensure our children fully grasp and understand their decision to follow Jesus Christ.   Baptisms can take place on a Sunday morning during a worship service or at one of our outdoor baptism services on our activity field or at Lake Greenwood. We will work with you to ensure you and your family have adequate time to plan and invite.
