FOLLOWING CHRIST IN WATER BAPTISM
Next baptism service August 11, 2013
Baptism Class: Nov 4 | 9:30am | Room 6
One of the most meaningful steps in affirming your faith is to follow Jesus in water baptism. Baptism by immersion is an event that publicly declares an internal commitment to follow Jesus. We celebrate baptisms several times during the year during our church services, and annually as a big celebration in Lake Michigan.
If you would like to be baptized, please attend an adult baptism class. Call the church office 269.983.1524 for details. Adults: learn more. Students, please speak to Chris, our student pastor. Parents of children ages 9-11, please contact Bill Shepard if your child would like to be baptized.
INFANT BAPTISM We do not baptize infants, but encourage parents to participate in a baby dedication, similar to the Biblical examples of the dedication of Samuel by his mother in the Old Testament, and Jesus by his parents in the New Testament. Learn more.
TESTIMONIES Read testimonies from those who have been baptized.
"Do you not know that all of us, who have been baptized into Christ Jesus, were baptized into His death? We were buried therefore with Him by baptism into death, SO THAT as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, WE TOO might walk in newness of life! For if we have been united with Him in death like His, we shall certainly be united with Him in a resurrection like His." Romans 6:3-5
