Frequently Asked Questions
What is baptism?
Baptism means to be immersed in water. It means to identify yourself with Jesus' death, burial, and resurrection. It is a symbol of death to your old self and new life in Christ. It is a physical act of obedience that publicly declares your faith in Jesus Christ.
Can I get re-baptized?
Yes. Every follower of Christ who can make this decision consciously for themselves should be baptized. Since we believe baptism is a conscious, personal decision about your own faith, if you were baptized as an infant or young child, we would encourage you to be baptized again. If you don't think your previous baptism met these requirements, or if you feel the need to rededicate your life to the Christ, we encourage you to be re-baptized.
When should I arrive?
If you are getting baptized, we ask that you arrive at 6pm on Wednesday. There will be an informational meeting before the service, and attendance to the meeting is mandatory for those being baptized. The Everyone Night service starts at 7pm for everyone else, so if you have friends and family that would like to attend, we would encourage them to arrive before 7pm.
Where should I go?
The pre-service meeting is in our upstairs auditorium. There will be people there to greet you and guide you if you have never been there before.
What should I wear?
You should arrive already dressed to be baptized, other than the t-shirts we will provide when you arrive. We ask that you wear dark colored undergarments, undershirts and pants. Pack whatever clothes you would like to wear after the service. There will be time to change into the shirts before the service, and the downstairs bathrooms will be dedicated to being a changing area for those being baptized. Please bring your own towel.
