Have you committed to follow Jesus for the rest of your life? 

Are you ready to take the next step in your faith? 

Then you’re ready for baptism!

We believe baptism is a celebration event!  Because we’ve gone from death to life, we’re celebrating that NEW LIFE in Christ when we get baptized.  There’s the symbolism of the old life that is gone (going under the water) and our new life that has come (coming out of the water) and how we’ve been raised with Christ at the moment we trusted Him as our Savior. 


We would love to celebrate with you!  If you’re interested in baptism, please fill out the application and we’ll help you with the next steps!

“…anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!"

2 Corinthians 5:17 (NLT)
