Baptismal Service

Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to be baptized by John. Matthew 3:13

Christ prescribed this ordinance which confirms faith in Him.  Preceded by a confession of faith in Christ and repentance, symbolizing the believer’s initial union with Christ by death to sins, burial (immersion) in water, and rising to new life; Repent — literally, to turn and go the other direction; specifically, to decide not to continue activities God forbids and to obey what He commands,  Converted — changed from being a sinner to a life of obedience to God (being a Christian).  Born again — the spiritual process of becoming a new person by belief in Christ. It involves repenting of sin and being forgiven of sin; conversion — transformation or change — regarding belief in and obedience to God; being a child of God, versus being a sinner.  Baptism –a public statement of your faith, Our great example of total immersion baptism is Jesus’ own baptism by John the Baptist.  Baptismal classes are highly recommended and are available upon request.

Blessing Service (Babies & Children)

Let the little children come to me, and do not  hinder them for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.  I tell you the truth anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little  child will never enter it.  And he took the children  in his arms, put his hands on them and blessed them. Mark 10:14-16

A blessing usually takes place as part of a main church service. With your child and family members we would like to welcome you to the front of the church and enjoy the service.  If you have any special readings or songs these can be discussed with the Pastor prior to the beginning of the service.
