Baptism is a public statement to the community and the world that you have chosen to accept Jesus Christ as your personal Savior and Lord. Symbolically you are telling the world you are Jesus’ disciple and you intend to follow his teachings and identify with his followers.
Romans 6:4 tells us, when we were baptized, we were buried with Christ and shared his death. So, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the wonderful power of the Father, we also can live a new life.
Who Can Be Baptized
Water baptism is offered to those who regularly attend Covenant family Chapel and consider it their home church.
Water Baptism Schedule
Water baptisms will take place after you register and take a day class. Date and time will be sent to you once you register
- Should have received Jesus as Lord and savior into their lives
- Completion of all classes is required to participate in water baptism.
Can I be baptized with a member of my family? What about inviting family?
If you would like to be baptized with your spouse and/or with your children, or if you would like your children to be baptized together, please let us know that when you register and we will do our best to plan for this. Of course, it is important that each family member has come to a point of personal faith in Jesus as Lord and Savior of their life before they are ready for baptism.
Water Baptism For children
Since water baptism is a public declaration of accepting Christ into your heart, we require that only those who understand what it means to be born again and have received Jesus into their hearts will be baptized.
What should I wear?
Clothes that will not retain much water work best (jeans are not good). You may wear dark-colored pants or modest length shorts (no short shorts please). Also, make sure to bring a change of clothes, two towels and a plastic bag for wet clothing.
Certificate & Photo
- A water baptism certificate and photo is provided to each participant.
- The certificates are passed out on the day of the water baptism.
- The photo can be picked up later from our office after a Sunday Worship Service
