We are so excited that you have decided to take the next step in your faith journey and be baptized. Having made this decision, you understand that this is a public confession of your faith and one that will encourage the Body of Word of Life. In order to highlight the transformation of becoming a Christ-follower, we want our church family to see not only your baptism, but also hear some of the “back story” of what Jesus has done in your life. We believe a short (2 to 3 minute) video of your faith story and baptism is the best way to make that happen.
What is next? We show water baptisms via video. Once you submit the form someone will be in contact with you this week to schedule a day and time (no more than 1 hour) for you to come to the church and have your testimony (spiritual story) videoed. The video will entail someone walking you through: what your life was like before Christ, how you met Christ and how your life has changed as a result. We want to partner with you in this next step of your faith journey; someone will assist you through the whole process. Check out some of our baptism videos here.
Then what? We believe in full submersion according to the example of Jesus in Scripture. After your spiritual story has been videoed you will be told the date and time that you and others will be actually water baptized. Feel free to invite family and friends to your live baptism. This will take place in our Chapel on the 2nd floor of the South Campus and will be videoed. That video will be connected to your videoed spiritual story and shown on a Sunday morning. Following your live baptism you will be told the date your story and baptism will be shown so you can invite people on that Sunday morning to see your video.
We are so excited that you have decided to take this next step in your spiritual journey. We are confident that God will use your story to impact others!
