Baptism is an outward expression of a commitment to follow Jesus Christ. If you have made a commitment to follow Christ as your Savior and as the leader of your life, then Scripture demonstrates that Baptism is a vital next step for you. Celebrate God’s grace & mercy in your life in the company of friends, family and your church family here at New Life.
We hold baptisms several times during the year. Before being baptized, you are required to attend a Baptism Class in order to be baptized. It is designed to help you understand the significance and meaning of baptism and to prepare for the actual baptism service.
The date of our next Baptism is not yet set. To sign up for the next class, check the “Baptism” box on the Communication Card and turn it in to the Info Center on Sunday morning or call the Worship Arts Office,
What should I do?
Sign up! You can sign-up by checking the Baptism box on the back of the Communication Card OR you can call 805-489-3254 ext 300.
Meet in the Worship Center (front row in front of the baptismal tank) 15 minutes prior to the service. Wear appropriate baptism attire (see below). Bring a towel and a change of clothing. Invite your family and friends.
What should I wear?
Wear dark, loose clothing with appropriate undergarments. Examples of clothing to wear are layered shirts (2 t-shirts), knee-length shorts, slacks (men), Capri’s (women). Please do not wear clothing that will float up or are see-through. Sometimes we will baptize at Avila Beach, so please be prepared to go into the water at the beach.
We look forward to sharing with you this important step in your walk with Christ Jesus! May God bless you as you continue to seek Him! Please email the Worship Arts Dept if you have any questions.
