Celebrate your Faith
Baptism is an exciting opportunity to publicly celebrate your faith in Christ, follow Christ's example, and obey Christ's teaching. We encourage you to invite your friends and family and be baptized as soon as possible. If you are interested in being baptized please see a pastor or email Randy Youngling. We would love to celebrate this incredible moment with you.
WHAT IS THE MEANING OF BAPTISM?
It illustrates Christ's burial, resurrection, and our new life as a follower of Christ.
"By our baptism then, we were buried with Him and shared His death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead... so also we may live a new life!" - Romans 6:4
WHO SHOULD BE BAPTIZED?
Every person who has believed in Christ.
"Those who believed and accepted His message were baptized..." - Acts 2:41
At WoodsEdge, we wait until our children are old enough to believe and understand the true meaning of baptism before we baptize them.
WHY BE BAPTIZED BY IMMERSION?
"As soon as Jesus was baptized, He went up out of the water." - Matthew 3:16
The Greek word "Baptizo" means "To immerse or dip under water". It symbolizes Christ's burial and resurrection!
WHEN SHOULD I BE BAPTIZED?
"Those who believed...were baptized...that day!" - Acts 2:41
There is no reason to delay. As soon as you receive Christ into your life, you can be baptized.
WILL I HAVE ANYTHING TO SAY?
We encourage you to declare your faith in Jesus by sharing your faith story. If you prefer, you can write it down and the pastor will read it for you.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR WHEN I AM BAPTIZED?
Women should wear shorts and a top which will preserve modesty - i.e. dark colored t-shirt. Men may wear a swimsuit and t-shirt. Bring a change of clothes, a towel, and a plastic bag for your wet articles of clothing. Changing rooms will be provided.
