Baptism

Baptism at CC

Baptism is a significant spiritual decision, one that will undoubtedly stand out as a defining moment in your spiritual life. We consider it a great blessing to join with you and to be a part of this wonderful celebration of your faith.

Baptisms are conducted frequently at Christ's Church. They can take place any day of the week and at any hour of the day in both private and public ceremonies. Baptisms are especially encouraged during the weekend worship services. Many find this to be a positive first step as they publicly profess their faith. It is also a blessing to the church body and serves as an example for others who need to follow in these same steps.

A baptism can be scheduled on the very day you contact us, but most tend to be planned with at least a few days notice.

What to Bring

Please bring shorts and a dark T shirt or use the T shirt provided by the baptism ministry. The T shirt is a gift from the church/baptism ministry to commemorate your baptism. We provide towels, hair dryers and plastic bags for wet clothes.

Arrival

If your baptism is scheduled to happen during one of the weekend services please be at the baptistry prep area 20 minutes before the beginning of the service so a minister can pray with you and you can receive final instructions. If you do not know where the baptistry prep area is ask at the welcome center and someone will escort you.
