Have questions about Baptism? Check out our FAQs below for more information.

Question: Why must I take the Next Steps: Growing in Grace Class before I can be baptized?
Answer: The class is required to learn the importance of baptism and the responsibility of Christian Discipleship. 

Question: What is baptism, and do I need to do it?
Answer: Baptism is your public declaration of your inward faith. Baptism itself is not an act that gets us into heaven––it is faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord that offers that assurance. Baptism is an acceptance of the gift of grace offered by Jesus Chris. Following His example, we are completely immersed in water to symbolically wash away the old to make room for the new!

Question: Who is supposed to get baptized?
Answer: Every follower of Jesus who has accepted Him as their Savior should be baptized.

Question: Is there an age requirement to get baptized?
Answer: Baptism is a personal decision; therefore, you need to be old enough to make a whole-hearted decision to do it! We recommend you be five years or older.

Question: Will I get totally wet?
Answer: Yes, from top to toes! We go all in at The Fountain.

Question: I’m all signed up. Is there anything I should do or bring?
Answer: Yes, invite all of your friends, family, co-workers, and neighbors to celebrate with you. We also recommend you bring dry clothes and a towel to dry off with. Remember you will be completely immersed in water, so plan appropriately when doing makeup and hair.
