Baptism / Child Dedications

Publicly declaring your faith in Jesus Christ

Baptism at The Bible Chapel

If you are considering being baptized, we would love to help you take this step. We baptize adults and students in seventh grade and older during our Celebration Services.

As you decide whether you're ready for baptism, here is some information on what baptism is,
and what it isn't:

Baptism IS:

  • For believers who have trusted in Jesus Christ alone as their Savior.
  • An outward demonstration of a saving faith in Christ.
  • An act of obedience. In Matthew 28:18-20, Jesus commands His followers to be baptized.
  • By immersion, which is a way to identify with Christ's death, burial, and resurrection.
  • For members and attendees alike.

Baptism is NOT:

  • Required for salvation. The Bible is clear that we are saved by grace alone through faith alone (Ephesians 2:8-9).
  • An "enhancement" to your salvation. There is no such thing. Jesus' work on the cross is already perfect and complete.
  • Required for membership at The Bible Chapel. We encourage all believers to be baptized, but we do not mandate baptism as part of membership.

Child Dedication

At The Bible Chapel, we believe that baptism is a choice that a believer can make once he or she has trusted in Christ. For this reason, we do not baptize infants or children through age 9, but we do joyfully dedicate them to the Lord during our Celebration Services.

We ask that parents are regular attenders of weekend services at The Bible Chapel. If you have not been a regular attender in the past, we’d love it if you would join us for several months before registering children for child dedication. If there are special circumstances, contact Wayne Johnson, .

A Word About Your Video Testimony

When you're baptized at The Bible Chapel, we ask you to partner with us ahead of time to film your video testimony (we'll discuss details during your Baptism Class). We understand you may be nervous to do this!

It's important to remember that we don't ask you to share your story so that viewers will focus on you. We ask you to share your story so that viewers will focus on God, and how he is working in your life.

No matter your story, God can use it to inspire others and move them to action. We've seen it happen.
