The Bible teaches that baptism is the first step of obedience when making a commitment to Christ. Baptism allows a believer to publicly communicate their commitment to Christ. People often have questions about baptism: Why should I do it? I’ve already been baptized, Do I have to do it again? Does it matter if someone was sprinkled or dunked? If you have questions about baptism, please contact us at 812-858-8668.

Sunday, August 9
We will have a special Baptism opportunity during each weekend service on Sunday, August 9. If you have considered taking this step of obedience in your commitment to Christ, we would love to come alongside you!
Your health and safety matter to us!
During this season, we are taking extra precautions for your safety during your baptism and have sought advice from local medical professionals and the CDC to ensure your health and safety.
- We will be sanitizing each of our Baptism Rooms after each use.
- Masks will be required. (We will provide one for you if you need it.)
- Our Baptistry has been disinfected and is warmed.

Did you know that as a baptized believer, you can baptize another person?
Any believer can baptize another believer. No other credentials are required beyond faith in Jesus Christ.
Here are some guidelines to help you.
When baptizing someone, (could be a pool, a tub, a lake or any body of water)
1. Ask them to repeat this after you:
"I believe the Jesus is the Christ," (they repeat)
"The Son of the Living God," (they repeat)
"And today, I receive Him" (they repeat)
"As my Lord and Savior" (they repeat)
2. Then say: “(Their name), upon your profession of faith,
I now baptize you in the Name of the Father,
the Son and the Holy Spirit.”
3. As you say the words above, place one hand on their back and
one on their front and slowly lower them into the water.
When you raise them back up, it represents Christ rising from the dead
and the person gaining a new life.
If you have baptized another person, take a photo to remember the special day and send the details to email@example.com so that we can celebrate with you!
