Baptism at Grace Fellowship
Water baptism is the next step after inviting Jesus Christ into your life. Baptism is an act of obedience to the Lord that publicly declares that you have died to an old life of sin and have been given a new life in Jesus Christ. (Luke 3:13-17; Acts 2:38-39; Luke 23:39-43). Faith in Jesus Christ is what saves a person (Ephesians 2:8-9).
At Grace Fellowship, profession of faith by baptism typically takes place by full immersion in water. However, on request, Grace Fellowship also offers other methods that have been used throughout church history: pouring (Acts 2:17-18) and sprinkling (Ezekiel 36:25-27).
For children in K-5th grade, we recommend they take Kidz 101 with a parent prior to baptism. For children who are too young to consciously choose baptism, Grace Fellowship offers both Infant Baptism (by sprinkling) and Dedication. Both forms of dedication act as a prayer that each child will one day invite Jesus Christ into his or her life.
