Being baptized means you’ve decided to accept and follow Jesus, and are ready to declare that decision publicly. Water baptism is kind of like a wedding ring: it’s an outward symbol of an inward commitment to something bigger than yourself. It shows we identify with Christ’s death and resurrection into new life.
Your decision to be baptized is one of the most important decisions of your life, second only to your decision to follow Christ. It is the very first thing the Bible instructs us to do after committing our life to Christ. Obeying in this first step of following Jesus, opens the door for his favor and direction in our lives.
WHO CAN BAPTIZE ME?
Anyone you want, provided that person is a Christ-follower who has already been baptized (whether that’s family, a friend, a ministry leader or one of our staff members). Practically speaking, for baptisms during one of our services, we may need to limit the number of non-staff people involved for the sake of time constraints.
HOW OFTEN DO YOU CELEBRATE BAPTISM?
Our baptisms are typically scheduled three times per year. See below for this year's scheduled dates.
WILL I GET WET?
You better believe it. We baptize via full immersion in water. Baptizing this way represents dying to our old way of life and rising to our new life in Christ.
WHAT IF I'VE BEEN BAPTIZED BEFORE?
Many people are baptized as infants or young children, as an act of faith by their parents. There’s nothing inherently wrong with that, but because baptism represents a commitment to Jesus Christ, it’s a decision that people must make for themselves. So, if you were baptized when you were too young to have made the decision yourself, or you did it because everyone else in the youth group was doing it, then go for it.
DO I HAVE TO BE A MEMBER OF LIFECHURCH TO GET BAPTIZED?
Nope. Baptism is a public declaration of a new association. It represents identification with the body of Christ.
WHAT DO I NEED TO WEAR AND DO THE DAY OF BAPTISM?
We try to make the particulars as easy as possible. When you sign-up to baptized, you will receive detailed instructions – including information about a short baptism orientation to help you feel prepared for this great experience.
