Infant/Child Baptism

Hosanna Church is pleased to offer baptism for children ages infant-Grade 5. Infant/child baptisms take place between services at the Lakeville and Shakopee campuses. Families are recognized and prayed for during our regular weekend services. The baptisms follow worship in a more intimate family baptism service. Please note: a parent baptism class is required.

What We Believe About Baptism

We believe that baptism is first and foremost about the unmerited grace and abounding love of God freely extended to us through Jesus. Therefore, we baptize adult believers (Acts 8:26-39) and the child of believers (Acts 16:15, 1 Corinthians 1:16, Luke 18:16).

Baptism of Youth/Adults: As a response to God’s unwavering promises and finished work in Jesus (Colossians 1:1:13-23), baptism is a means of grace that affirms the redemptive transformation that is taking place within a person who has accepted and confessed Jesus as Lord and Savior (Romans 10:9). Baptism isn’t a prerequisite for salvation. However, baptism publicly affirms all God has done, is doing and will do through Jesus for those who in faith have said “yes” to following Jesus.

Baptism of Infants/Children: We believe that the promises of God for his people are extended, as a means of unmerited grace, to the children of believing parents (Genesis 17:7; 1 Corinthians 4:17). We teach that it is necessary for children who are baptized to come, in God’s time, to a personal saving faith in Jesus (John 1:12-13; 3:16-17, Romans 10:9) for the promises of baptism (Romans 6:3-4, Mark 16:16, 1 Peter 3:21) to be fully realized. In other words, the free gifts offered in baptism must eventually be opened.

We accept the baptisms of those who come to us from other congregations and denominations as valid, provided that they were performed with water in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19). We do not teach that unbaptized children who die are lost for eternity. We do not teach that individuals who were baptized as children need to be baptized again as adults. However, we do welcome and celebrate the reaffirmation of earlier baptisms.
