BAPTISM AT C3
C3 celebrates baptisms quarterly in January, April (Easter Sunday), July and November. Our July baptisms are held in an outdoor venue.
Baptism at C3 is full water immersion. This was the way Jesus was baptized.
WHY GET BAPTIZED?
Baptism doesn’t make you a believer – it shows that you already believe. Baptism does not “save” you, only your faith in Christ does that.
Baptism illustrates Christ’s burial and resurrection. It symbolizes your new life as a Christian.
WHO SHOULD GET BAPTIZED?
Every person who has believed in Christ. At C3, we wait until children are old enough to believe and understand the true meaning before we baptize them. Learn more about Kids Baptism here.
misconceptions about baptism
Myth #1: Only kids and super Christians get baptized.
Fact: Baptism is for ANYONE who has accepted Christ and wants to “go public” with their faith. Adults and kids (beginning at around age 9) are encouraged to check it out.
Myth #2: You have to give your testimony in front of everyone.
Fact: We want you to have the opportunity to tell your story, but it is best done one-on-one with another person or in a small group.
Myth #3: I was baptized as a baby/child, so I should not do it again.
Fact: Water baptism is about your personal decision to follow Jesus Christ not someone making the decision for you.
