Christian baptism is the immersion of water upon a believe in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. It is an act of obedience and a public testimony symbolizing the believer's faith in a crucified, buried, and risen Savior; a testimony to walk in newness of life in Christ Jesus.
Why A Class?
For many, baptism is not necessarily something that is uncommon, but often not taught or discussed. The reason we provide a class is so that we have an opportunity to minister to individuals through the Word of God on what baptism is, what it means, why it matters, and where we stand as a church on the ordinance of baptism.
It is also an opportunity for questions to be asked on practice, misconceptions, or simply for further clarity on scriptures' teaching.
Is The Class A Requirement?
For those looking to be baptized, we ask that you attend this short class before being baptized; should any questions or concern arise, they can be addressed previous to baptism.
How Can I Sign Up?
Fill out the form below to register for the class--the course is free and anyone is welcome. Additionally, we would strongly recommend that if children are looking to be baptized, parents would be present.
The baptism class is scheduled for Wednesday, February 20th at 6:30 p.m. on the 2nd floor of the McAllen Creative Incubator; baptisms will take place on Sunday, March 3rd 2018 after service at the Incubator. We will provide further details after class and follow up during the week to make sure all are on the same page.
