Baptism

In Matthew 3:13-16, Jesus was baptized to fulfill all righteousness. Baptism for the believer is a step of obedience (Romans 10:9-10) and serves as a public profession of faith in Christ. It is a symbol of the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ (Romans 6:3-11).

Baptism FAQs

Who should be baptized?

Only those who trust in Jesus.

Do you baptize babies?

We believe baptism is a personal choice after salvation. Our RevKids Team offers Parent Child Dedication twice a year where we commit to partnering with you to raise your children to Love Jesus.

Do you baptize children?

Yes, but we want to make sure they understand what baptism means by going through our online Start Here program (grades K-5th) with their family. When you register your child for baptism, we will send you information.

Do you baptize students?

Yes, with parental or guardian consent.

Do I have to go fully under the water?

Baptism is a symbol of the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus. By fully going under the water and being raised to life, we are following His example.

What is the relationship of baptism to salvation?

Baptism follows salvation, but the act of baptism is not what saves you. Baptism is a symbol of what happened to you when you placed your trust in Jesus and were saved. (Acts 2:37-38; John 3:1-6; Mark 16:12-16)

Why should we be baptized?

  • It's a step of obedience.
