We are planning to have a baptism service early in the fall semester. Are you already baptized? Would you like to take this opportunity and participate in a baptism class?
At SCCC, we love to celebrate lives changed by Jesus Christ. One of the ways we do that is through Baptisms. Baptism is a public expression of your faith in Jesus. We baptize people today because the Lord Jesus told us that after a person has become His follower, they are to be baptized. So if you are a Christian but haven’t been baptized since becoming one, we encourage you to participate in baptism.
Questions About Baptisms
I was baptized before; should I be baptized again?
If you were baptized as a baby, child, or before you trusted in Christ, then yes, you should. If you were baptized as a believer elsewhere, you don’t have to be baptized again at SCCC.
Do I need to have it all together before I'm baptized?
No. Being baptized doesn’t mean you’re perfect. If you are trusting Christ for salvation, you’re ready to be baptized.
Does baptism forgive my sins?
No. Trusting Jesus forgives your sins. Your Baptism is a public declaration of your decision to trust Jesus.
What do I need to do in order to be baptized at SCCC?
Contact the church office at email@example.com OR Pastor Russ firstname.lastname@example.org, and let us know. We will contact you and invite you to attend a Baptism Prep Class.
Does SCCC baptize infants?
No. SCCC performs Child Dedications for children under the age of three. If you’re interested in dedicating your child, please contact Pastor Sam at email@example.com.
