WHY SHOULD I BE BAPTIZED?
Those who are baptized are following Jesus' example and obeying his command.
(Matthew 3.16-17; Matthew 28.18-20)
WHAT IS THE SIGNIFICANCE?
Water baptism is a public declaration of three very important things:
You are a follower of Jesus Christ (Acts 2.41)
You are beginning a changed life in Christ (Romans 6.4)
You are part of a new family. (Galatians 3.26-27)
I HAVE ALREADY BEEN BAPTIZED. SHOULD I BE BAPTIZED AGAIN?
Your baptism should have signified you becoming a follower of Jesus,
beginning a changed life, and uniting with a new family.
If your baptism did not reflect this change of life, then you should be baptized again.
CAN MY CHILD BE BAPTIZED?
We will baptize anyone who understands what baptism symbolizes and wants to make that personal, public declaration. We recommend children considering baptism be at least 12 years of age, but we encourage any parents to partner with our Lighthouse Kids and Lighthouse Youth ministries to help guide your children through these decisions of faith.
CAN MY INFANT BE BAPTIZED?
At Lighthouse we follow the example of Jesus:
He was dedicated as an infant by his parents (Luke 2.22-40),
and baptized later as an adult (Matthew 3.16-17).
So while we do not baptize infants, we do provide opportunities for child dedications.
