Baptism is an important step of obedience that 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.
Those who are baptized are following Jesus’ example and obeying His command.
Water baptism is a public declaration of three very important things:
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.
We will baptize anyone who understands what baptism symbolizes and wants to make that personal public declaration. We encourage all parents to partner with our C3 Kids and Zeal Students ministries to guide your children through these decisions of faith. For any parents of children under the age of 11, they need to meet with a leader in C3 Kids to make sure they understand this important step in their faith journey. In addition, any students from the ages of 12-18 must meet with a leader C3 Students before being baptized.
