What Is Baptism?

Baptism is a visible representation of a person’s identification with the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus (Romans 6:3-5). It is the outward sign of belonging to the people of God—those who have repented and put their faith in Jesus Christ. It is not a means or step in salvation. Believers should be baptized out of obedience to Christ (Matthew 28:19-20). You should get baptized if these two conditions describe you: 1) You have repented of your sins and believed on Christ alone for salvation. 2) You have not already been baptized as a believer by immersion.

How Do I Get Baptized at CFC?

  1. Talk to an elder about your (or your child’s) desire to get baptized.
  2. Attend a baptism class. Those wishing to be baptized must attend a baptism class so that we can confirm that your understanding of salvation and baptism is accurate.
  3. Get baptized by immersion. Most often, baptisms are held as a part of Sunday morning worship service.
