baptism BADGE

have I been baptized?

Wondering why your baptism badge is not lit? Here are a few questions to consider.
If you've been baptized, please click on the "I have already been baptized" button below.

  • Baptism is an outward expression of an inward change. It’s a public declaration of how Jesus is changing your life. 
  • Being baptized shows that you’ve decided to follow Jesus as your leader and forgiver, and allows others to celebrate this decision with you (Acts 16:31-34).
  • Baptism is a picture of the death, burial and resurrection in your life just as Jesus was that first Easter. 
  • The power that brought Jesus back to life is the same power Jesus uses to change our lives – and that’s worth getting excited about!
  • Baptisms in the Bible were by immersion.
  • The original word for baptism most often referred to being immersed or submerged in water.
  • Jesus was baptized by being immersed in the water and rising out of it (Matthew 3:16, Mark 1:10).
  • Submersion in the water symbolizes the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus (1 Corinthians 15:3-4).
  • Being submerged under water represents our death to sin and old way of life, and being raised out of the water is a picture of how Jesus raised us and gave us a fresh start in life (Romans 6:3-5).
  • We believe baptism is a personal choice that happens upon someone’s confession of faith and they need to be old enough to make that decision themselves.  As parents, we can help point our children to Jesus, but they are the ones to decide if they will commit their lives to Him (Romans 10:9).
  • Once you’ve been baptized by immersion there’s no need to be baptized again. The work God does in baptism sticks. Even if you fell away from God for a while, the fact that you’re back is a testament to the work that God did in your life and in your baptism.
  • If you have not been baptized by immersion since you decided to follow Jesus, we want to help you take your next step.  Please visit or click the “I’m ready” button below.


in baptism we identify with Jesus' death, burial, and resurrection and publicly declare our intention to follow Him.
