Water baptism is as an outward expression of inward faith. Water baptism expresses our identity in Christ. However, like a logo to a ball team, it does not determine that identity.
We schedule water baptisms a few times a year. Spiritual and practical preparation is available through the Baptism Orientation Class which is conducted a week or two prior to the baptismal service. The class is for those desiring to know more about the Scripture's teaching on baptism and/or for those desiring to be baptized. Once a baptism is scheduled, the congregation is notified via the ABC eNews (a church wide email), and the church bulletin.
