Baptism

Baptism is one of two sacraments recognized by Baptists.

Adult baptism by full immersion

As Christians, we each come to faith in God through a free, personal decision; therefore, we practice the baptism of believers.  For this reason, we do not practice infant baptism, reserving baptism for adults and young people mature enough to make a fully conscious and committed decision.  Following Biblical example and modeling the life, death and resurrection of Christ, we baptize by full immersion.

We have developed a baptism curriculum for churches to use.
