Baptism

“What are you waiting for? Get up, be baptized and wash your sins away, calling on his name.” – Acts 22:16

If you’ve said YES to a relationship with Jesus, you are ready to be baptized! Baptism is an enactment of the invisible realities of the gospel and the Holy Spirit’s power in our lives.

Sign up here to start the process, and Pastor Cassie Smith will be in touch with you.
