Baptism is a celebration of your public commitment to accept and follow Jesus Christ giving Him control of your life. Baptism is a symbol of your old self (going under the water) and the new you being raised to life (coming up out of the water) by the power of the Holy Spirit. Life change is what it’s all about – God changing us from the inside out!
If you are ready to say YES to Jesus and take the next step of baptism, let us know. 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 kids are old enough to believe and understand the true meaning of this step before we baptize them. Our church holds Parent 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
- Jesus was baptized that way.
- Every baptism in the Bible was by immersion.
- Immersion best symbolizes a death and a resurrection.
How do you know if you are ready for baptism? Ask yourself Are You Ready?
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.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
