Who should be baptized?


Christians believe that the blood of Jesus Christ shed on the cross, provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sin. Therefore, salvation occurs only when a person places his or her faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as the sufficient payment for his or her sin.

If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, then you are ready to be baptized. Just like a bride and groom show others their love for one another by wearing wedding bands, your baptism is your opportunity to show others that you have accepted Christ and are now walking with Him.

Baby Dedications

Some denominations choose to baptize infants. While we recognize the right of other churches to practice infant baptisms, we understand the Bible teaches that only those who are able to articulate their faith themselves qualify for baptism. Baptism does not make you a believer, rather it shows that you already believe. Therefore, we offer for families to be a part of a Baby Dedication ceremony. To get more information about being part of our next Baby Dedication opportunity, please contact us at celebrate@hopesb.com.
