Water Baptism & Family Night

2022 Water Baptism details coming soon

The Bible says that if you have accepted Christ into your life, your next step is to be water baptized (Matthew 28:18-20). He calls us to come as we are, not to “clean ourselves up” beforehand. The act of water baptism washes us clean through our Savior, and we emerge with a fresh start.

Every year, we love celebrating Water Baptism with you, your family, and the Creekwood community. It is truly an amazing experience to witness people taking this important step in their faith journey! If you would like to go public by getting water baptized, complete the form below.

Common Questions On Baptism

What is water baptism?

As you are immersed in water, you bury your old sinful nature. When you come out of the water, you experience the new life and resurrection in Jesus.
(Colossians 2:12, Romans 6:4)

Who should be baptized?

Once you have committed yourself to Jesus Christ and acknowledge Him as Lord by turning away from sin and trusting Him, you are ready for water baptism.
(Acts 2:41; 8:12-13)

Why should I be baptized?

To follow the example set by Christ. (Mark 1:9) Because Christ commanded it. (Matthew 28:18-20) It demonstrates that you really are a believer. (1 John 2:3)

Why do we baptize by submersion?

The word “baptize” means to “dip under water.” Because Jesus was baptized that way. (Matthew 3:16) Every biblical baptism was by immersion. (Acts 8:38-39)

Should I be baptized again?

Your baptism should have signified you becoming a follower of Jesus, beginning a changed life, and uniting with a new family. If your baptism did not reflect this change of life for you, you should be baptized again.

Can my child or infant be baptized?

At Creekwood, we wait until our children are old enough to believe and understand the true meaning of baptism before we baptize them. When a child makes a decision to follow Christ, we will gladly baptize them.

Can I invite people?

Of course! Having friends and family to celebrate with you at your baptism is a great way to show them that you are serious in your commitment to Christ.
