Baptism

Outdoor Baptism Celebration
Sun, Sept. 15 | 9 &10:45 a.m.

We love celebrating baptism as a church family here at West Shore Free Church. It’s a time where we get a concentrated dose of how God has the power to save and transform lives. These Sunday services remind us what a joyful thing it is to be saved by the grace of God and brought into His family. It’s easy for us to forget that God is always on the move, but during our baptism celebration, we remember that nothing is to difficult for him.

Celebrate on Sunday, September 15 during both our 9 & 10:45 a.m. service as members of our church family choose to obey Christ and declare their allegiance to him as they share their testimonies. 

Afterward, we will celebrate with a food truck rally & picnic on our grounds. Be sure to bring along blankets, chairs and water bottles for this celebration!

Ready to be baptized?

Baptism is an outward expression of an inward confession of a relationship with Jesus Christ and we are excited for you to take this next step! In order to be baptized, you are required take one of our two baptism classes. At this class we will walk you through what it looks like to get baptized here, one of our elders will hear your testimony, and you will get coaching on how to share your testimony. As you consider, read this booklet on baptism within the Bible. We are excited for you to take this next step in your spiritual journey! 

When you register to be baptized, you will be able to select your desired date: 
Tuesday, September 3 @ 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Sunday, September 8 @ 12:30 p.m. (*Childcare & lunch included) 

Children Wanting to be Baptized

Children who have accepted Jesus Christ as their Savior and who understand the meaning and purpose of baptism are welcome to be baptized. Our church has a two-step process:
1. Read our  “Discovering Baptism ” booklet or pick it up at the Tiki Hut read and discuss it with your child, to make sure that your child understands the meaning and purpose of baptism.
2. If you believe that your child is ready to be baptized, please schedule an interview with Pastor Terry. Children do not have to attend the church-wide baptism classes.

The church does not have any minimum age requirement for children being baptized, but since a person is only baptized once in life, it is strongly recommended that children wait until they are old enough to experience the impact and remembrance of the event.

If you have questions or need additional information about children wanting to be baptized, please contact Pastor Terry.
