Baptism

“This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!” 2 Corinthians 5:17

Baptism follows the example set by Jesus, found in Mark 1:9. For us it is an outward expression of the inner transformation that happens when we give our lives to Jesus and make him Lord of our lives. Baptism symbolically portrays a believers joining in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. It proclaims to all that we have died to our old self, raised to new life in Christ, and now live in the freedom of this new life as a forgiven child of God and devoted follower of Jesus. That’s what Baptism is all about…celebrating your new life through Jesus!

Are you ready to be baptized since making the decision to follow Christ? Do you have questions about baptism or salvation? We would love to talk with you!

Child Dedication

“Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him.” Psalm 127:3

Child dedication is a public statement by parents who want to thank God for their child, entrust them to him, and commit themselves to raise their child to follow God. Parents who dedicate their child to God are acknowledging their role as a loving steward of His gift, and are asking for God’s wisdom and direction in parenting. Dedication is a biblical parenting principle found in both the Old & New Testaments.

When a child is older and able, they can express their own personal faith in Jesus and be baptized. Our purpose for dedicating children is to celebrate the gift they are to their families and the church, and give parents the opportunity to publicly commit to raise their child to be a follower of Christ. It also gives family members, friends, and church family the opportunity to express their commitment to support the parents.

We are joining God in the renewal of all things and take seriously our call to engage in his ongoing work. We believe that ministry and serving in His Kingdom aren’t reserved for the spiritual elite or church staff! As the founder of the Vineyard, John Wimber, liked to say, “Everybody gets to play.” Everyone has a role in the Kingdom of God!
