Immersion Baptism

"So in Christ Jesus, you are all children of God through faith, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ." Galatians 3:26-27

We believe baptism is, first and foremost, about God's unmerited grace and abounding love 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).

If you want to surrender your life to Jesus for the first time or reaffirm the baptism of your youth, stepping into the “new thing” that God is doing in our lives through the waters of baptism, join us as we celebrate baptisms. When you register, we can come alongside you to shepherd you through this significant experience.

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. Rather, baptism publicly affirms all God has done, is doing, and will do through Jesus, for those who live in the faith have said “yes” to following Jesus.

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 an unbaptized child who dies is lost for eternity. We do not teach that individuals baptized as children must be baptized again as adults. However, we do welcome and celebrate the reaffirmation of earlier baptisms.

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 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.
