Baptism Class
Sep

9:00 AM09:00

Baptism Class

Baptism is a symbol of your new life as a Christian. We bury the ‘old life’ and we rise to walk in a ‘new life’. Baptism is like a wedding ring, it is the outward symbol of the commitment you made in your heart, a commitment that has to be followed through and lived out on a daily basis.

Baptism does not make you a Christian.  Baptism does not “save” you, only faith in Christ does that. Baptism is a symbol. It’s meant to show the world that you love, trust, and have put your hope in Christ. 

If you are ready to be baptized as an outward statement to everyone who sees it that you have trusted Christ for your salvation and are committed to living for Him, your next step is to sign up for our Baptism Classe....

All In Book Study

All In Book Study

All In Book Study

Leader: Laurie Fiorenza

Place: Teacher’s Lounge

Cost: $10

Everyone Welcome!

 The message of All In is simple: if Jesus is not Lord of all then Jesus is not Lord at all.  It’s all or nothing. It’s now or never.   Kneeling at the foot of the cross of Christ and surrendering to His Lordship is a radical act of dethroning yourself and enthroning Christ as King.  It’s also an act of disowning yourself.  Nothing belongs to you. Not even you.
