Baptism is a personal statement of faith, not a tradition. It doesn't make you a believer; it shows that you already are one! Baptism doesn't "save" you, only your faith in Jesus can do that. Baptism is a public declaration that you are identifying yourself with Jesus Christ.
When you were sprinkled as a baby, that was a commitment that your parent(s) made; your baptism now will be an expression of your adult commitment to Christ. Throughout the book of Acts, the Bible shows this pattern: hearing the gospel, believing and repenting, and then getting baptized.
Yes, you should. The Bible says to repent, believe, and then be baptized.
No, you do not need to be baptized again, assuming that you were truly committed to Christ and were baptized in obedience to the Biblical directive, and it was a Christian church. Your baptism symbolically professed your membership in the Body of Christ, not a specific church or denomination.
It depends. It usually makes sense to be baptized by the pastors or elders of the church you attend. Please contact us to discuss any special circumstances (for example, you are an out of town visitor who got saved at our church and would like to be baptized here before returning home).
If your original baptism was a Christian baptism in obedience to the Biblical directive, there is no need to be baptized again.
God cares about your heart, not the exact mechanics of the baptism. Let us know your circumstances, and we will find a safe way to baptize you.
Please dress modestly. Appropriate bathing suits or shorts, and a t-shirt (or other covering) is typical.
Our baptisms usually last an hour.
There is no sign-up. Simply watch the videos and show up on time.
Everyone! Bring family and friends. Let them witness your joy and take pictures.
