Baptism Weekend

October 30 & 31

 

The Bible is pretty clear that once we’ve put our faith in Jesus, our next step is to get baptized. If you would like to receive more information about our next Baptism Weekend, please fill out our interest form below.

 

 

Taking this next step in your relationship with Jesus is a huge step in your faith, and we can’t wait to celebrate with you!

COVID-19 Safety Guidelines

Our team has created a safe way for all adults and kids interested in taking the step of baptism at our physical locations.

  • You will be the only person in the water at a time when getting baptized.
  • Although a mask does not need to be worn in the baptism pool, masks must be worn immediately before and following baptism.
  • A limited amount of baptisms will be scheduled per time slot per location. You will be contacted with your time slot for your baptism after signing up.
  • Please be aware that chlorinated water does not support transmitted viruses, as chlorine is considered a disinfectant.
  • If you have any further questions on what baptism will be like, email us at baptism@yourjourney.tv. We’d love to help answer your questions!

Who can baptize me at The Journey's physical locations?

Those getting baptized will be baptized by someone from our team or can choose to be baptized by someone who has already been baptized, which can be noted when signing up. If someone else is baptizing you, share this PDF with them, giving them all of the information they need to know.

Can I choose to be baptized at home?

Absolutely! Whether you gather online or are more comfortable getting baptized at home, we have some information for you that’ll help guide you in taking this step:

  • Choose a place to get baptized — a bathtub, river, pool, or hot tub are all great options depending on what you are comfortable with.
  • Choose someone to baptize you. They don’t need to be a pastor — just a follower of Jesus who has already been baptized. Share this guide with them before your baptism.
  • Wear dark clothing, bring a towel, and invite friends and family to attend and celebrate.
  • After you get baptized, we’d love to have a chance to celebrate you! Email us your photos and videos at baptism@yourjourney.tv along with your story.

Baptism Facts

1. WHY BE BAPTIZED?

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

  • “After his baptism, as Jesus came up out of the water, the heavens were opened and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and settling on him. And a voice from heaven said, “This is my dearly loved Son, who brings me great joy.””—Matthew 3:16–17
  • “Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”” —Matthew 28:18–20

 

2. WHAT IS THE SIGNIFICANCE OF BAPTISM?

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

  • You are a follower of Jesus Christ.
    “Those who believed what Peter said were baptized and added to the church that day—about 3,000 in all.” —Acts 2:41
  • You are beginning a changed life in Christ.
    “For we died and were buried with Christ by baptism. And just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious power of the Father, now we also may live new lives.” —Romans 6:4
  • You are part of a new family.
    For you are all children of God through faith in Christ Jesus. And all who have been united with Christ in baptism have put on Christ, like putting on new clothes.” —Galatians 3:26–27

 

3. I HAVE ALREADY BEEN BAPTIZED. 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, then you should be baptized again.

 

4. CAN MY CHILD BE BAPTIZED?

We will baptize anyone Kindergarten age and older who understands what baptism symbolizes and wants to make that personal public declaration. We encourage any parents to partner with our Journey Kids team to guide your children through these decisions of faith. For more information to help guide your child through this important decision, check out our Journey Kids baptism page HERE.
