At The Crossing, we recognize God’s instruction that every Christian should be baptized after receiving Christ as personal Savior. Therefore, every member is expected to be obedient to Christ’s command to be baptized. If you have any questions look below or contact us.

questions and answers

Who should be baptized?
At The Crossing, we wait until our children are old enough to believe and understand the true meaning of salvation and baptism before we baptize them. The purpose is to publicly confess your personal repentance, salvation, and commitment to Christ.

How should I be baptized?
We believe the Bible teaches that baptism should be by immersion in water as a believer.

Does baptism make me a Christian? Do I have to be baptized to go to heaven?
Baptism is something that God commands and expects every believer to take seriously and to go through as an act of obedience. It’s vitally important, but to say that baptism “saves” us or that baptism is required before I can go to heaven contradicts the teachings of the Bible. Jesus told the thief on the cross, “Today, you will be with me in paradise.” The thief had no time to be baptized before dying moments later. Baptism is simply the first next step for a new believer in Jesus.

When can I be baptized?
We baptize regularly throughout the year! We post the dates here and on Facebook, or sign up below for more info.

Can my family be baptized together? Can family members participate in my baptism?
Yes. We love to see family members go through baptism together, but we don’t recommend waiting long for family members to make a decision for Christ and we are careful to make sure that kids “own” their own decision for Jesus. We do invite believing parents or close family members to assist as our Pastors baptize.

What should I bring on baptism day?
Bring your own shorts/pants, undergarments, and a towel, along with anything else you think you might need.

Sign up below for our next baptism - and since it's summer we will be OUTSIDE at beautiful Mirror Lake.

**Make sure to bring all your towels, clothes and things to church and head to Mirror Lake after service.
