Baptism & Dedications

Celebrting this husband and wife who made the decision together to be baptized at The Village Christian Church in Minooka, IL

Baptism is a celebration to publicly profess that you’ve made a decision and commitment to accept and follow Jesus Christ. Life change is what it’s all about – God changing us from the inside out. Getting baptized is a making a public commitment to say YES to Jesus and a starting point for life change! If you are ready to take the next step of baptism, click the green button below and we can proceed immediately. We’re ready to go as soon as you are!

There’s no set time or specific age to do this, although here at The Village, we wait until our kids are old enough to believe and understand the true meaning of this step before we baptize them. Our church holds Dedications for little ones, which allow parents and family to make a public faith commitment to raise their kids in a Christian home.

Why We Believe In Baptism By Immersion

  1. Jesus was baptized that way.
  2. Every baptism in the Bible was by immersion.
  3. Immersion best symbolizes a death and a resurrection.

After his baptism, as Jesus came up out of the water, the heavens were opened and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and settling on him. Matthew 3:16

“To me, baptism means to wash away your sins and take an extra step towards greeting God in heaven when the time comes. You are giving yourself to God. I’ve decided to take this next step because I want to be with God for all my life. I’m ready to do whatever it takes to be with God”  – Nicole

Take the next step!
