Thanks for your desire to be baptized! We want to help make your baptism a meaningful public expression of your commitment and association with Jesus Christ both for you and for the Church gathered to witness it. In order to do that, please take a few minutes to fill out the following form. Please note that this application does not guarantee your slot for a baptism date or time. We will send a confirmation email once approved.
Your Declaration of Faith: At the bottom of this form you will be asked to write out a declaration of your faith and why you want to be baptized. Consider that this is to be a public declaration of the effect of Jesus Christ in your life and your commitment and association with him.
It will be helpful for you to reflect on:
How you became aware of your sinfulness and your need for a Savior?
How Christ brought you to repentance and faith?
Why you want to be baptized?
You might include a few sentences that describe your life prior to Christ, how he revealed himself to you and then the effect of the gospel in your life. People whom God has used or helped you in your walk. This should be around 1-3 paragraphs.
The pastors will review the thoughts you share and may make edits for clarity or for time considerations. We will send you a copy of the edited declaration to review. It is important to us that everyone feels that they are sharing their own words and experiences, and that it is clear for those who are witnessing your baptism. Please call the church office if you have further questions.
