Thinking About Baptism?

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.
During this time of quarantine, we’re navigating the best way to accomplish this. To find out more regarding your baptism, email sfuller@canyonridge.org

Baptism Frequently Asked Questions

If you’ve been considering this important next step in trusting Jesus more, we’ve put together some answers and information to help you along your journey.

What is Baptism?

Baptism is when we publicly declare and commit ourselves to Jesus as the Savior and Leader of our life. We are fully immersed under water and raised up in a new life. This is a visual representation of the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus. Matthew 28:19-20

When do I get baptized?

Scripture tells us you should be baptized, “…as soon as you believe.” We schedule dates and weekends so that you can invite others to be a part of your story, but we’re ready when you are to take this step and can schedule accordingly. Acts 8:35-39

What do I bring or wear?

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.

Who can baptize me?

We have pastors ready to baptize you. If you have a friend or family member that’s help you along your journey, they are more than welcome to baptize you. As a parent, you may wish to baptize your child.

What about infant baptism? How old should my child be?

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.
