When a child is baptized, the parents make a profession of faith on behalf of their child. As the parents claim that Jesus is their Lord and Savior, they also make commitments to raise their child to know Jesus Christ. In baptism, a child becomes a part of the church family but they must one day, make their own decision to follow Jesus Christ. This decision often takes place in the elementary or middle school years. Many of our children confirm their faith when they go through the confirmation process, usually during their 9th grade year. We walk alongside families as they teach their children about faith and a relationship with Jesus Christ. We also provides age appropriate and dynamic programs for kids and students as well as small group leaders who mentor young people as they grow in their faith.
To move forward with baptizing your child, please review the below requirements:
- at least one parent must be an active and local member of our church
- at least one parent must attend the Baptism Workshop prior to the Baptism
- This workshop provides vital information about the theology of baptism as well as the details for the baptism day.
