What is Baptism?

The Bible clearly teaches that baptism is the next step of obedience after making a commitment to Christ. During the act of baptism, the believer communicates to the world their heartfelt commitment to Christ. 

Believer Baptism is for older children, youth, and adults at Bay Hope Church is typically by full immersion. That means you are fully submerged in (heated!) water by the pastor. 

For children who are not yet able to make the decision themselves, we celebrate God's grace already at work in their lives through early childhood baptism. This is done by sprinkling (the pastor puts a small amount of water on the child's head). 

All baptisms are preceeded by a prerequisite baptism class to answer any questions you might have and help you get started on your faith journey. We are thrilled to celebrate with you. 

Are you ready to take the next step? Register for an upcoming baptism weekend!  

Early Childhood (Infant) Baptism Weekend October 13-14, 2018

Children are special and amazing gifts from God. At Bay Hope Church, we encourage parents to have their little ones baptized as a way of saying that God is already at work in the child’s life and the parents are acknowledging this fact and committing themselves to raising their children in His ways. Early childhood baptism is for kids in nursery - kindergarten.

The Early Childhood Baptism Class is required for participation in Early Childhood Baptism weekend. The class is held the weekend before the actual baptism.  It is for parents only. Childcare is available in our nursery and preschool rooms during all classes.

Early Childhood baptism weekend is October 13-14th during all services. Please register before October 7th, 2018.

The prerequisite baptism class is on October 7th.
