There's nothing more exciting to us than seeing someone take a stand and publicly declare that they are a follower of Jesus Christ.

Here at Fellowship, baptisms are one of our favorite celebrations. From the moment you sign up to the moment you rise from the water, we’d love to walk alongside you on this journey. If you’re interested in getting baptized at our Sunday gatherings or a private location of your choosing, we’d love to connect with you.

baptism FAQs

Baptism is a 2000+ year old Christian ceremony that’s practiced to publicly declare that Jesus has changed your life and that you identify with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It uses the element of water to symbolically communicate what has happened internally: that your old way of living has been put to death, the stain of your sins have been washed away, and now you are alive in Christ (Romans 6:4­-10).

Why should someone get baptized?

First and foremost as an act of obedience to what Scripture calls all followers of Jesus to (Matthew 28:19­-20). Secondly, to follow the example that was left for us by Jesus and His followers (Acts 2:38, Matthew 3:13­17; I Peter 2:21).

When should someone get baptized?

People often feel they need to wait to be baptized until they become the “right kind of Christian” or a “better person.” The Gospel communicates that we could never be good enough to earn the Good News; instead, it’s a gift that’s freely offered to us that we get to receive. Our encouragement is for someone to get baptized as soon they have opportunity to do so. The heart of this encouragement is to recognize that there could be many logistical things that keeps someone from getting baptized within a week or months of their initial commitment, but the hindrance should never be an internal one based out of legalism, fear, guilt, shame, self-righteousness, or condemnation (Matthew 3:5­9; Acts 2:37­-38, 8:36­-38).

Can children be baptized?

Since baptism is such an important decision, we believe this choice should be made at an appropriate age and on one’s own accord. For this reason, it is our practice to baptize those over the age of twelve. We recognize there is often a genuine conversion and understanding of the Gospel of Christ for children under this age, so we thoughtfully consider each application for those under twelve years of age on a case-by-case basis. If your child is under twelve years old and has made a decision to trust in Jesus Christ, we would love to meet with you and your child and talk through next steps! Please email us at to get the conversation going.

If I was baptized as an infant do I need to get baptized again?

Because the Gospel is something that a person must choose to put their trust in, we believe the decision to follow Christ and be baptized must be made on one’s own accord. If you were baptized as an infant but wish to be baptized again now that you have agency to make this decision for your life, we’d love to connect with you to set up your next steps!

What do I need to do to get signed up for the next baptism service?

Start by registering online for our next baptism class. Attending the class is mandatory in order to join in the baptism service. Signing up will require creating an account, but if you have previously signed up Group at Fellowship of any kind, then you already have an account! Otherwise you will need to create an account first (which only takes 30 seconds).

What can I expect at the baptism class?

Come to the class ready to celebrate with others who are taking this brave step of proclaiming Jesus as the Lord and Savior of their lives. During the class you’ll have an opportunity to learn what the Bible says about salvation and baptism as well as share your unique salvation story.

Please come prepared to have your picture taken and share a 3 minute testimony that answers the following questions: What was my life like before Christ? What changed in my life after putting my belief in Christ? Why am I choosing to get baptized now?

You’ll show up 30 minutes before the service to meet with a Pastor and we’ll walk you through everything you need to know for the morning. We’ll be with you every step of the way!
