Being baptized is an important step of obedience in your walk with Jesus Christ, and we're excited to help you take that step.
Water baptism shows others we have personally trusted Jesus for our salvation. Jesus was baptized when He was on the earth, and we do this to follow His example. When Christians are baptized, they are submerged under water to identify with the death and burial of Jesus and raised out of the water to identify with His resurrection. We believe that water baptism is a public declaration of three important things: you are a follower of Jesus Christ, you are beginning a changed life in Christ, and you are part of a new family. Baptisms are held the 3rd week of every month.
1. WHY BE BAPTIZED?
Those who are baptized are following Jesus' example and obeying His command. (Matthew 3:16-17 and Matthew 28:18-20)
2. WHAT IS THE SIGNIFICANCE OF BAPTISM?
Water baptism is a public declaration that you are a follower of Jesus Christ (Acts 2:41), that you are beginning a changed life in Christ (Romans 6:4), and that you are part of a new family (Galatians 3:26-27).
3. I HAVE ALREADY BEEN BAPTIZED. SHOULD I BE BAPTIZED AGAIN?
Your baptism should have signified you becoming a follower of Jesus, beginning a changed life and uniting with a new family. If your baptism did not reflect this change of life, then you should be baptized again.
4. CAN MY CHILD BE BAPTIZED?
We will baptize anyone over age 7 who understands what baptism symbolizes and wants to make that personal public declaration. We encourage parents to partner with Trinity Fellowship K!DS and Student Ministries to guide your children through these decisions of faith.
5. CAN MY INFANT BE BAPTIZED?
Throughout the New Testament, the Bible teaches that baptism is a public expression of worship symbolizing the new life we have when we follow Jesus. In the Bible we see that Jesus' parents dedicated him to the Lord (Luke 2:22-40), and he was later baptized as an adult (Matthew 3:16-17).
Although we realize that some churches practice infant baptism, at Trinity Fellowship, we provide opportunities for baby dedication.
We will provide a Baptism t-shirt you get to keep! All you need to bring is a towel and dry clothes for after baptism.
Water baptism is a time of celebration and public declaration of a new life in Christ. Bring your friends and family with you so you can celebrate together!
