Let’s celebrate your baptism!
Deciding to follow Jesus is a big, big deal—and it’s a decision that’s meant to be shared with your church family. (We can’t wait!) Our next Baptism is Oct. 4 at Fort Desoto Beach.
BAPTISM IS AN INITIAL, PUBLIC SIGN OF YOUR NEW PERSONAL FAITH AND LIFE
Baptism signifies your new relationship with Jesus. It functions as an illustration or picture of what Jesus has done in your life. At New Walk Church we also offer baptism classes. The classes are not a requirement but serve as a resource to provide more time to discuss the gospel and the meaning of baptism.
When people are thinking about getting baptized, they typically have lots of big questions. We have answers!
who should be baptized?
Anyone who’s made the decision to follow Jesus Christ can be baptized.
Why should I be baptized?
Some people worry that if they don’t get baptized, their decision to follow Jesus doesn’t “count.” That’s absolutely not the case! Although baptism is commanded by God, our salvation isn’t reliant upon it. It’s still vitally important, though, as a public celebration of the single most important decision you can make in life. Even Jesus was baptized! What better way to show the world Christ has changed your life than by following in His footsteps?
When can I be baptized?
We have a spring and fall beach baptism that takes place in late April/early May and late September/early October.
