Baptism is an important step of obedience that shows others we have personally trusted Jesus for our salvation. Jesus was baptized when He was on the earth, and we do this to follow His example. When Christians are baptized, they are submerged under water to identify with the death and burial of Jesus and raised out of the water to identify with His resurrection. We believe that water baptism is a public declaration of three important things: you are a follower of Jesus Christ, you are beginning a changed life in Christ, and you are part of a new family.
INVITE YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY TO JOIN YOU
Water baptism is a time of celebration and public declaration of new life in Christ. Bring your friends and family with you to a service at WHWC so you can celebrate together.
WHAT TO WEAR TO YOUR BAPTISM
Wear dark clothing that you don't mind getting wet. We will provide a t-shirt on the evening of the event. Bring a towel and a change of dry clothes.
