Baptism Application for December 9
The Baptism will take place December 9 at 5:30pm immediately following our Sunday service.
Thanks for your desire to be baptized! We want to help make your baptism a meaningful public expression of your commitment and association with Jesus Christ both for you and for the Church gathered to witness it. In order to do that, please take a few minutes to fill out the following form. Please note that this application does not guarantee your slot in the chosen baptism date or time. We will send a confirmation email once approved.
Please write out a declaration of your faith and why you want to be baptized. You may submit this in written or electronic form by bringing it to the church office or emailing it to alex@RisenHopeChurch.org. Your faith story can be up to 4 minutes long when spoken. Consider that this is to be a public declaration of the effect of Jesus Christ in your life and your commitment and association with him. It will be helpful for you to reflect on: How you became aware of your sinfulness and your need for a Savior
How Christ brought you to repentance and faith
You might also include a few sentences that describe your life prior to Christ, how he revealed himself to you and then the effect of the gospel in your life. The pastors will review the thoughts you share and may make edits for clarity or for time considerations. We will send you a copy of the edited declaration to review. It is important to us that everyone feels that they are sharing their own words and experiences, and that it is clear for those who are witnessing your baptism. Please call into the church office if you have further questions.
