He saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit.

Titus 3:5

Baptism is an important step of every Christian’s walk with the Lord. It is a public declaration of your personal commitment to Christ. We believe in adult baptism by immersion where your whole body goes under the water and is then raised up out of the water: symbolizing Christ’s burial and resurrection. You come out of the water with newness of life. 

Baptism is an important decision not to be taken lightly. In general, we recommend children wait until they are of an age to understand the gravity of the decision. 

If you have any questions about being baptized, please call the church office at 717-241-5920 or email us at
