Taking a next step in your faith
Baptism is for everyone who has decided to become a follower of Jesus and “go public” with their decision. We believe the Bible teaches that baptism is for any believer old enough to make a decision to follow Jesus and happens through full immersion as a symbol of His death, burial, and resurrection.

Kids & Student Baptism Classes
The Children’s Baptism Class is a tool for parents and their Elementary-Age students to attend together on August 7th. It helps children to better understand and/or begin the conversation of what a commitment to Christ means and then what the next step of baptism by immersion signifies. Contact Laurel Baker, Children’s Pastor at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Adults, Middle & High School Students who want to know more about following Christ and baptism, are encouraged to contact Mark Howell, Engagement Pastor at email@example.com for details and to make an appointment for baptism!

We provide a new t-shirt, towels and a place to change. We recommend wearing a bathing suit to wear under your clothes or bringing one to change into.

At CRCC, while we don’t practice infant baptism, we do provide Parent/Child dedications throughout the year for families with infants. Kid’s come to their decision about Jesus at all different ages. We provide a Kid’s Baptism class to help parents and kids answer those big questions. You can find out more here.
