QUESTIONS ABOUT BAPTISM

People often have questions regarding baptism: Why should I be baptized? What if I’ve already been baptized? Do I have to do it again? Does it matter if someone is sprinkled or dunked?

Take a few minutes to read the answers to these 6 common questions about baptism. 

What to expect on the day of your baptism

 

When do I prepare?

At the conclusion of the service during the prayer time, you can use the restrooms to change and then return immediately to the sanctuary where an usher will direct you to the proper place to await to be baptized. 

What do I wear?

For baptism wear modest shorts and we provide a t-shirt which can be picked up prior to that day or the morning of baptism (Please do not wear white see-through items). Bring a change of clothes, a towel, and a plastic bag for your wet clothes.

 

Will I have to say anything?

When the Pastor calls for you, there will be an usher that will assist you into the water.  The Pastor will say, “Because of your confession of faith in Jesus Christ, you now profess to this congregation and identify with Christ through baptism that Jesus is the Lord of your life, I baptize you in the name or the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.” You DO NOT have to say anything!
