What is Baptism?
Baptism is for all who have been transformed by the unexpected joy of desperate dependence on Jesus Christ. In baptism, we publicly identify Jesus Christ as our Savior and participate in His death and resurrection by dying to what separates us from God and by being raised to newness of life in Christ. Through baptism, believers invite others to witness and celebrate what God has done in their lives.
Frequently asked questions
Baptism is an outward expression of inward transformation. We are not saved by baptism or any other good works. We are saved by grace alone, through faith alone, in Jesus Christ, alone.
For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2:8-10
Interested in being baptized?
Once we receive your baptism form, we will follow up and schedule a time for you to connect with a minister! During this time, we want to get to know you, hear your testimony, and coordinate which approved minister will perform your baptism. From there we will schedule your baptism date so you can invite others to celebrate with you and your Northwest family!
