@calvaryhanford, we believe baptism is an important part of every Christian’s life.
along with communion, baptism has been given to us by Jesus as an ordinance to follow and celebrate.
while not essential for salvation, baptism is commanded for those who have believed in Jesus and are trusting Him for their salvation. it is something that we do to identify with Christ in His death and resurrection. therefore, we believe that baptism is for people who are old enough to understand on their own that they are giving their lives to Christ, forever identifying with Him.
throughout each year we hold baptisms periodically.
if you are a Christian and need to be baptized, let us know using the form below.
there’s nothing magical about baptism. it does not save you. it is simply something we’re commanded to do so that we can demonstrate to the world that we belong to Christ and that we are depending on Him, His sacrifice for us and His victory over sin and death.
