Baptism was commanded by Christ in Matthew 28:19-20 and has been practiced by Christians in the Scriptures and throughout history. Baptism is the act of being immersed in water to declare a believer’s identification with the message, followers, and person of Christ. Baptism is not a requirement for receiving eternal life. Baptism at Bethel is a time of public celebration of the miraculous work of salvation that God provided through His Son.
Anyone who has placed their faith in Christ for salvation is encouraged to be baptized. We usually suggest that children are in 2nd grade or older before being baptized, so they can begin to understand some of the symbolism involved in baptism.
We offer Baptism on Easter Sunday each year and in November. There is an informational class to prepare for that Sunday and a walk-through rehearsal so you can know what to expect on the day of baptism.
