Baptism at Connection Pointe
What does the church believe about baptism?
The Bible teaches that baptism demonstrates we have received God's grace by putting faith in Christ, repenting of sin and confessing Christ. Once you have acknowledged that Jesus Christ is Lord, baptism by immersion is the tangible way of showing that you trust Him alone for your salvation.
It is not only a symbol that you are committed to Christ, but it also represents the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Those who have been baptized in a form other than total immersion, such as christening or dedication, are immersed to become members of Connection Pointe.
Are there any prerequisites?
- Baptism of Children in Grade 5 or Younger: In order to be baptized, these children must either attend Starting Pointe: Elementary Edition or meet with Dave Wohlenhaus, our Children's Ministry Director, prior to being baptized so that they fully understand the decision they are making.
- Baptism of Middle School or High School Students: In order to be baptized, they must meet with one of the Student Ministers prior to being baptized so that they fully understand the decision they are making. Click here for student baptism information.
- Baptism of Adults: In order to be baptized, they must complete the Starting Pointe class prior to being baptized so that they fully understand the decision they are making. Those who complete Starting Pointe and are baptized become Connection Pointe members.
When can I be baptized?
As soon as you believe in Christ, we encourage you to schedule your baptism. In addition to offering regular baptism days, we are glad to baptize you during a service at your request or to schedule your baptism whenever it is convenient for you and those you want to invite to your baptism.
What do I wear?
A swimsuit or shorts and a T-shirt usually work best under the baptismal robes. Towels are provided.
Who baptizes me?
Any person who is an immersed believer can baptize you. We invite you to have the person who led you to Christ or someone who has encouraged you along the way to baptize you, though any Connection Pointe staff member would be glad to baptize you.
