"Therefore we have been buried with him by baptism into his death, so that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in a newness of life." 

- Romans 6:4

Baptism Sunday

Easter Sunday, April 17

We're doing baptisms on Easter Sunday! Since the time of the ancient Church, Easter has been a day for people to be baptized. Lent, the 40-day season leading up to Easter, was a time to prepare for baptism. It still is. Through study, prayer, and reflection, people take advantage of the Lenten season to ready-up for this act of faith and devotion to Jesus Christ. If you are interested in baptism or would like to talk with one of our pastors about this sacrament, click the link below and we'll be in touch.

  • Baptism is a Christian sacrament that one undergoes when they have decided to be a follower of Jesus. From the earliest days of the Jesus movement, baptism was used as a kind of announcement of one's faith in the resurrection of Jesus, and as a symbol of association with - and commitment to - the ways of Jesus. Many churches use the language of "going public" with your faith when talking about baptism, and this is a good way to describe the practice. Baptism symbolizes two things: (1) the death of an old self and (2) the birth of a new self. The act of being immersed in water imagines a kind of death, and the rising out of the water is a nice picture of being raised to "walk in a newness of life." (Romans 6:4)

  • Anyone who has decided to do so, especially those who are new to following Jesus!

  • We currently do not perform infant baptisms, but instead we offer baby dedication gatherings during the year.
