BAPTISM FAQs

(FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS)

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! At The Fountain, we practice baptism by full immersion in water – meaning you are going to get soaked!

Question: Once 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. Please see the "Checklist of Items to Bring."
