When a person enters in to new life with Jesus, the Bible tells us that all of heaven rejoices. Baptism is an outward symbol of the inward commitment to Christ. Baptism is our testimony to the public of belonging to Jesus. If you have accepted Christ, we would love to baptize you and share this special decision with you to go public with your faith!
Baptism is an opportunity to celebrate with your friends and family the commitment that you have made to Jesus Christ. It is the physical act of immersion in water that represents the washing away of our old sinful nature and the rebirth of our new spirit in Christ. Baptism is an exciting expression of what God has done in our church to change people’s lives on an individual basis.
“Jesus said, ‘Go then, to all people everywhere and make them my disciples, baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and then teach them to obey everything I have commanded you.” – Matthew 28:29-20
Why should I be baptized?

Because obeying Christ’s commands shows you know Him.

What does baptism mean?
“Christ died for our sins…he was buried…and he rose again.” – 1 Corinthians 15:3–4

Why be baptized by immersion?
“As soon as Jesus was baptized, He went up out of the water.” – Matthew 3:16
“…then both Philip and the eunuch went down into the water and Philip baptized him. When they came up out of the water…” Acts 8:38,39 38–39

“But when they believed Philip as he preached the Good News…and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women.” Acts 8:12

When should I be baptized?
“Those who believed…were baptized…that day!” Acts 2:41
“Then Philip began with the Scripture and told him the Good News about Jesus. As they traveled, they came to some water, and the eunuch said, “Look here is some water! Why shouldn’t I be baptized right now?” Philip said, “If you believe with all your heart, you may.” The official answered, “I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.” Then both Philip and the eunuch went down into the water and Philip baptized him.” Acts 8:36–39 (Paraphrase)
Can I get baptized if I’ve already been baptized?
