An important step of obedience that shows others we have personally trusted Jesus for our salvation

Jesus was baptized when He was on the earth, and we do this to follow His example. When Christians are baptized, they are submerged under water to identify with the death and burial of Jesus and raised out of the water to identify with His resurrection.

We believe that water baptism is a public declaration of three important things:

You are a follower of Jesus Christ

You are beginning a changed life in Christ

You are part of a new family

Baptism Facts

Those who are baptized are following Jesus’ example and obeying His command.

As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. And a voice from heaven said, ‘This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.’” —Matthew 3:16–17

“Then Jesus came to them and said, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.’”
—Matthew 28:18–20

Water baptism is a public declaration of three very important things:

You are a follower of Jesus Christ.
“Those who accepted his message were baptized.” —Acts 2:41

You are beginning a changed life in Christ.
“We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.” —Romans 6:4

You are part of a new family.
“So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.” —Galatians 3:26–27

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, then you should be baptized again.

We will baptize anyone over age 7 who understands what baptism symbolizes and wants to make that personal public declaration. We encourage any parents to partner with our iKids and YS Students ministries to guide your children through these decisions of faith. For more information to help guide your child through this important decision, check out our Children’s Baptism Guide PDF.

Throughout the New Testament, the Bible teaches that baptism is a public expression of worship symbolizing the new life we have when we follow Jesus. In the Bible we see that Jesus’ parents dedicated him to the Lord (Luke 2:22–40), and he was later baptized as an adult (Matthew 3:16–17).We understand that some churches practice “baptism of confirmation” for children. This ceremony is intended to be a commitment between the parents and God on the behalf of the child. The parents promise to raise their child in the faith until the child is old enough to make his or her own personal confession of Christ. This custom began about 300 years after the Bible was completed and is different from the biblical examples of new believers being baptized to publicly profess their faith in Jesus. So, at Light of the World we provide opportunities for child dedication and believer’s baptism. To schedule a baby dedication, please complete the Baby Dedication Registration Form.

Parent / child dedication registration

We are excited that you are interested in having your child dedicated to the Lord.

The purpose of Parent/Child dedication is for parents to present their child before God and His people, asking for grace and wisdom in carrying out their responsibilities. Parents also come praying that their child will one day trust Jesus Christ as Savior.

Parent/Child Dedication is always on the second Sunday of each month. We encourage you to invite friends and family to attend, so that they can join you in praying and celebrating this special time with you. Please send us the above information as quickly as possible so we can try to accommodate your request.
