Sunday, July 21 at 9:00, 10:15, and 11:30 AM
Are you ready to be baptized?
CCV’s next baptism services are happening on Sunday, July 21 during the 9:00, 10:15, and 11:30 AM services. Baptism services are meaningful and exciting events for our entire church family. This day is an amazing experience for every person who makes the decision!
Who should be baptized?
Anyone who is ready to make Jesus the leader and forgiver of their life.
Who will baptize me?
One of CCV’s pastors conducts the baptism services, but we encourage you to consider asking the person who helped you come to faith in Jesus baptize you. The only requirement is the person must be baptized by immersion themselves.
How will I know I’m ready?
If you want to do it, you’re ready! You’re ready when you realize trying to do life on your own isn’t working, and you want to make a fresh start and ask Jesus to lead your life.
What if I was baptized by sprinkling as an infant or an adult?
At CCV we base our beliefs about baptism on what the Bible teaches, not church tradition. When people were baptized in the Bible, it was always by immersion. We recognize that many have been “sprinkled” as children or adults. We want you to be grateful for this foundation your parents laid for you. Baptism by immersion doesn’t invalidate the importance of what parents did for you. It’s simply the next step in your spiritual journey. Immersion is a decision we make for ourselves.
What happens at the baptism service?
At a designated time during the service, all those being baptized are invited to the baptistery area in the main auditorium. Participants are greeted and given directions about changing clothes, where to go, etc. If you’re being baptized, we ask you to be baptized in shorts and a t-shirt. We provide a special t-shirt (it’s yours to keep), all you need to bring is shorts and a towel. Changing areas are near the baptistery for you to use before and after the service.
How do I sign up to participate?
