Baptism An outward expression
of an inward change.

If you’ve made the decision to follow Jesus, water baptism is your next step. 


Following the example of Jesus, we practice full immersion water baptism, which symbolizes His death and resurrection. Being baptized publicly identifies us with Jesus, signifying that we have died to our own way of living and have been raised to life in Him.

Baptism FAQs

 Who should be water baptized?


Those who have placed their faith in Jesus Christ.

(Romans 10:9-10)


When should I be water baptized?


As soon as you decide to follow Jesus, baptism is your next step. There is no reason to delay.

(Acts 8:12)


What is full immersion water baptism?


The Greek word from which we get the word baptism is “baptizo”, which means “to immerse”. All water baptisms recorded in Scripture were by immersion. Jesus was baptized by being fully immersed in the water and rising out of it.
(Matthew 3:16, Mark 1:10, Acts 8:38-39)


Do I need someone on church staff to perform my baptism? Who can perform baptisms?


The Great Commission applies to all believers, teaching us to baptize disciples in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. There is no credential to be baptized or to be a baptizer, other than to be a believer. Jesus himself was baptized by John, showing the authority to baptize is given to all Christians.


(Matthew 3:13-17, Matthew 28:18-20)


Do I need to be baptized at church? What is the proper procedure?


We hold baptisms regularly at all of our locations, but you can be baptized anywhere there is water! Find a pool, a river, or an ocean. Baptism is not about a body of water, but the condition of your heart.

(Romans 10:9-13, Matthew 3:13-17)
