Jesus commands his followers to "go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and of the Holy Spirit." (Matthew 28:19). This is not a polite suggestion; it is a command from Jesus which he gives as his "last words" before his ascension into heaven!
Baptism is a public event for the whole family of God to celebrate! Baptism services are held at the following times on Sundays:
- In the Chapel during the 9:00 am Traditional Service on the second and fourth Sundays
- In the Worship Center following the 11:00 am Celebration Service
- In the Worship Center during the 5:00 pm Celebration Service on the second and fourth Sundays of the month
Once a quarter, special full immersion baptisms are offered. Please contact Hope at [email protected] to inquire about a full immersion baptism.
If, however, getting baptized in a public setting is the only thing keeping you from being baptized, please contact Hope at 222-1520 or [email protected] and special arrangements can be made.
