Baptism

As a believer, your baptism demonstrates your faith in Christ.

Understanding Baptism

If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, we invite you to be baptized into a new life with him.

To help you understand what the Bible teaches about baptism, we have included several Scripture references below. Simply click to read them, or follow along in your own Bible.

Baptism is the first act of obedience after a person accepts Jesus Christ as Lord (Matthew 28:18-20, Acts 8:12) and is born again of the Holy Spirit (Romans 8:9).

Baptism is also a visible illustration of a believer’s union with Christ in His death, burial and resurrection.

Baptism Classes

SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 9 & 23 • 2:00 – 4:00 PM • E102

When we follow Jesus, our lives are transformed. Our sins are forgiven, and we are renewed. One of the most exciting ways we get to celebrate this, is through baptism. By being baptized, we publicly proclaim our faith in Jesus as our Lord and Saviour.

Our next baptism takes place on Sunday, March 8.

If you would like to participate in the next baptism, please visit the church website or the Connection Centre and submit a form by Sunday, January 26. Based on a personal interview and class participation, we will help you determine your readiness for baptism. For more information, please contact Lorna

What About Infant Baptism?

Many faith traditions celebrate the birth of a child through baptism. Here at Peoples, we offer family dedication instead—and with it, we celebrate the extended circle of support provided by family and friends who are welcoming the child into their lives.

Family dedication can be done at any age, until a child is ready to personally accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour and be baptized. We encourage you to consider the opportunity for family dedication to celebrate the wonderful gift that God has given you—and to acknowledge your dependence on him in raising your child.

Family Dedication Classes

SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 23 & MARCH 1 • 9:15 – 10:15 AM • W201

If you would like to participate in the next dedication, we ask all parents to attend a three-week course on parenting. The course will be held on the three Sundays prior to the dedication service on Sunday, March 8. Please submit a completed dedication form by Sunday, February 9. For more information, please contact us.
