Baptism isn’t required for salvation, but is a crucial necessary step of faith for believers. The baptismal waters don’t save anyone, rather it is Jesus who saves us. Baptism is a picture of the work that Jesus has done in a person’s heart.

Baptism illustrates Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection (1 Corinthians 15:3-4). It shows our new life as a follower of Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17). Baptism doesn’t make you a believer… it shows that you already believe. Baptism doesn’t save you; Jesus does! Baptism is like a wedding ring, signifying a relationship rather than forming that relationship.

We follow Jesus’ example in baptism. He was baptized (Mark 1:9), and commanded us to be baptized (Matthew 28:19-20).

At Faith, we baptize by immersion. That’s the example we see throughout Scripture, and is the basis for the meaning of the word “baptize,” which means to immerse (or dip under) in water.

We can normally baptize you during our Sunday worship service. Just fill out this form and let us know when you would like to be baptized. Someone will get in touch with you shortly with instructions.

Ready to be Baptized? 

If you’re a believer, you should be baptized! It doesn’t matter if you were saved 20 years ago or just last week… it’s time to take the next step in your faith journey.

Is Your Child Interested in Baptism?

Is your child asking questions about what it means to follow Jesus? Perhaps your child made the decision to follow Jesus, but hasn't been baptized yet. Maybe you want more information on baptizing your child at Faith.
