Baptism is an important step of obedience that shows others we have
 personally trusted Jesus for our salvation. Jesus was baptized when He was on the earth,
and we do this to follow His example. When Christians are baptized, they are submerged
under water to identify with the death and burial of Jesus and raised out of the water to identify
with His resurrection. We believe that water baptism is a public declaration of three
 important things: you are a follower of Jesus Christ, you are beginning a changed life in
Christ, and you are part of a new family.

The Bible says that all professing Christians should be baptized (Matthew 28:18-20).
Whether you've been following Jesus for a long time and never got baptized or are a new Christian,
we would be honored to baptize you!

Baptism Facts 


Those who are baptized are following Jesus’ example and obeying His command.

“As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God
descending like a dove and alighting on him. And a voice from heaven said, ‘This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.’”
—Matthew 3:16–17
“Then Jesus came to them and said, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples
of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything
I have commanded you.’”
—Matthew 28:18–20


Water baptism is a public declaration of three very important things:

You are a follower of Jesus Christ.
“Those who accepted his message were baptized.” —Acts 2:41
You are beginning a changed life in Christ.
“We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through
 the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.” —Romans 6:4
You are part of a new family.
“So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves
 with Christ.” —Galatians 3:26–27


Your baptism should have signified you becoming a follower of Jesus, beginning a changed life, and uniting with a new family. If your
baptism did not reflect this change of life, then you should be baptized again.


We will baptize anyone between the ages of 10-12 years old who understands what baptism symbolizes and wants to make that personal public declaration.
We encourage any parents to partner with our children ministries to guide your children through
 these decisions of faith.


Throughout the New Testament, the Bible teaches that baptism is a public expression of worship symbolizing the new life we have
when we follow Jesus. In the Bible we see that Jesus’ parents dedicated him to the Lord (Luke 2:22–40), and he was later baptized
as an adult (Matthew 3:16–17). We understand that some churches practice “baptism of confirmation” for children. This ceremony
is intended to be a commitment between the parents and God on the behalf of the child. The parents promise to raise their child in
the faith until the child is old enough to make his or her own personal confession of Christ. This custom began about 300 years after
 the Bible was completed and is different from the biblical examples of new believers being baptized to publicly profess their faith in
 Jesus. So at BFC we provide opportunities for child dedication and believer’s baptism.
