Baptism, whenever it happens, is at the heart of an amazing journey of faith as a Christ-follower. You are never too old to take this step. Being baptized as an adult is a wonderful experience!
You may have been baptized as a child or in a different Christian tradition, and there are always special ways to renew the promises that were made then in a new way as you discover more about what it means to live as a child of God and a believer in Jesus Christ. We do not re-baptize individuals, but we do offer baptism remembrances/affirmations. If you are looking for information on baptism remembrance options, contact us here.
Baptisms are a symbolic act that represents what has already happened internally in the life of a believer. We encourage you to consider where you are in your faith journey and whether being baptized as an adult is right for you.
A few points on what baptisms are:
- Baptisms represent the life of the believer dying to self and being raised again in new life.
- Baptisms are a public testimony of one’s personal faith in Jesus for salvation.
- Baptisms are a public declaration that someone will live a new life in Christ.
What baptisms are not:
- Baptisms are not instant salvation
- Baptisms are not a magical act that wash away sin
- Baptisms are not a rite of passage or a ritual to attain spiritual maturity
