I'm Ready to Get Baptized. Baptism does not save us. It’s a symbol of the salvation that has already taken place in your life. Baptism is the public expression of your faith in Jesus and communicating to the world your heart-felt commitment to following Him.


We believe that baptism by water is an outward sign of an inward faith and declares three important things:

  • I am a believer and follower of Jesus Christ.

  • I have been changed, washed from my sins by the blood of Jesus and I am given a new resurrected life.

  • I have been claimed by God as His child and adopted into a new family - God's family called the church.

If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and have never been baptized, then you're ready to be baptized. If you have ever (as an infant, child or adult) been baptized by water (sprinkling or immersion), you do not need to be baptized again. If you are wanting to renew your commitment or seeking to rededicate your life to God, the best action is for you to get connected in a Life Group and focus on growing your relationship with God.

If you are ready to take the next step towards baptism or want to know more about the process, please contact us. We would love the opportunity to meet with you to discuss your spiritual journey and your understanding of baptism.
