Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age. 

—Matthew 28:19, 20

Hang up your past – God is calling!



We can never earn forgiveness for our sins, but we can receive forgiveness as a free gift from God, provided by Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross. It is available by faith to everyone who accepts Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. If you have accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior, you’ve experienced an incredible miracle, one that when fully understood radically changes how you relate to God. The next step is baptism!

A baptism is a physical act that represents the miracle of the new birth. It is a way of identifying with Christ in His death, in His burial, and in His resurrection.

We are baptized because it gives us identification with Christ, it represents our new birth and it’s a command from Jesus. It also serves as a point of separation for us, a clearly defined moment when we can say, “I have separated myself from the life I lived before.”

“I tell you, whoever publicly acknowledges me (Jesus) before others, the Son of Man will also acknowledge before the angels of God.” (Luke 12:8)




Throughout the New Testament, the Bible teaches that baptism is a public expression of worship symbolizing the new life we have when we follow Jesus. In the Bible, we see that Jesus’ parents dedicated Him to the Lord (Luke 2:22–40), and he was later baptized as an adult (Matthew 3:16–17). We follow this model and have Baby Dedication here at Grace. This is a time when parents promise to raise their child in the faith until the child is old enough to make his or her own personal confession of Christ. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our GraceKids Ministry.



We will baptize anyone over age 7 who understands what baptism symbolizes and wants to make that personal, public declaration. We encourage any parents to partner with our GraceKids and Grace Students ministries to guide your children through these decisions of faith. For more information to help guide your child through this important decision, check out our Children’s Baptism Guide at our Info Stations.


We are so excited to help you take this step in your spiritual journey!

We encourage you to take our Baptism Orientation Class prior to being baptized.

Orientation happens the last Wednesday of every month at 7 pm in room C122.
