You may have accepted Christ at Grace, or somewhere else, maybe even years ago, but you’ve never been baptized. If you’ve made the decision to follow Christ, and are ready to be baptized, we’re here for you. Baptism is the outward expression of an inward decision. We would love to share in this special moment in your life when you choose to go public with your faith.
The next baptism date will be in May. Sign-up HERE.
Am I ready be baptized?
Baptism is a statement. When you’re baptized in water, it’s a public statement that your heart has been given to God and that your old life is gone and your new life in Christ is starting. So if you’ve been born again in this way, you’re ready to be baptized.
That’s awesome! We’re thrilled that God is doing this powerful work in your life! Sign-up for baptism HERE.
How should I dress?
We’ll get you info on all that. Basically, wear dark clothes, and bring a change of dry stuff and a few towels.
What if I still have questions?
This is a deeply personal moment and it’s a big step in your relationship with Christ. We get it. Part of our path to baptism is a Bible Study; it gives you a chance to look at the Bible for yourself and see what it has to say. You can download the study here. And the pastors are also available for any questions. Just email us at email@example.com.
Can kids get baptized?
The way that we understand it from the Bible, baptism is a step that we’re commanded by Jesus to take (Matthew 28:19) after we’ve made a personal commitment to be born again. This isn’t a decision that parents can make for their kids, which is why we don’t baptize babies. When it comes to kids making this commitment, each child might be ready at a different age. So we work closely with parents (because they know their kids best), to be sure that baptism will have all the meaning Jesus intended it to have for them.
Has anyone drowned in your baptismal?
Not yet, but we’ve had a few close calls. Just kidding.
Can family be there?
We’d love it. It’s meant to be a public blessing that others join into. Invite as many as possible. Tell them to bring cameras if they want. They can cheer, clap, whatever.
