One of the defining moments of my young Christian life was being baptized in water.
Standing in front of dozens of strangers wearing a “Man of Sorrows” T-shirt , I made my profession and was submerged in a 4-jet hot tub that doubled as a baptismal. I arose from the water with a clear view of my wife, smiling and clapping, and new that I had embarked on the most important journey of my life.
Baptism is a very important decision in the life of any believer, and Valley Christian Center is excited to walk alongside you when you step into this process.
VCC follows the biblical model set forth in Mark 1:4-5 by baptizing those that are of understanding, and are making their own personal choice to repent. Our understanding of the scriptures is that baptism is for believers only. Therefore we do not baptize babies or infants but rather we “dedicate them.”
If you have never been baptized in water and are not sure if you “qualify” or are ready to take this step in your faith, consider the following questions:
- Have you had a “born again” experience as noted in John Chp. 3?
- Do you believe that Jesus lived, died, and was raised to life as noted in Mark Chp. 15-16?
- Are you repentant in Spirit and Action?
- Can you say with confidence that Jesus Christ is your Lord and Savior?
- Is being baptized your decision?
If you were able to answer yes to all of the questions above, you are ready to move forward in your faith journey. At VCC, we bring out the Baptismal Tank (no longer a hot tub) the 2nd Sunday of each month and would consider it an honor to be able to baptize you in our main sanctuary.
