As followers of Jesus Christ, baptism is an essential starting point in our relationship with Him.

What is baptism?

We respond to God's free gift of salvation by believing in Jesus Christ to save us. We demonstrate our belief by surrendering to Christ's leadership and authority over our lives and by being immersed in water and raised out of the water (baptized) in His name.
Acts 2:38

Why should I be baptized?

To obey the command of Christ.
Matthew 28:19-20.
To identify with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection.
Romans 6:3-5
As a pledge toward God.
1 Peter 3:20-21

When should I be baptized?

As soon as you believe in Christ and choose to follow Him it is appropriate to be baptized. All of the baptisms in the Bible occurred the same day people believed
Acts 2:41; 8:35-38
But, logistically, we offer monthly baptism classes to prepare you for this step, follow the link above to register for our next class!

What should I expect?

At ECC we do baptisms anytime and anywhere water is available. We are always available to do baptisms during our weekend services.
Wear shorts and a top or swim wear. Something you don't mind getting wet.
We encourage you to invite your family and friends to attend your baptism and service!
You will be asked two questions: "do you believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God" and "Do you accept Him as the Lord or "boss" of your life?
