Baptism

WHAT DOES BAPTISM MEAN?

It's not just a tradition. It's a step of faith.

For 2000 years, Christians have been baptized to declare to the world that they are believers and followers of Jesus Christ. Taking the plunge is a significant step in your spiritual journey.

Campus baptisms have been postponed due to public health concerns related to COVID-19. Please visit kensingtonchurch.org/coronavirus for further information.

I’m Ready!
So, you want to take the plunge and proclaim your faith in Christ? Here are your next steps:

Prepare
Please watch this video. It is designed to help you understand the significance of baptism and will help determine if you are ready to be baptized. We also ask that you read Baptism 101

Invite Others
Ask your friends and family to come to this event! Baptism is a significant step in your spiritual journey and we want you to share it with those close to you.

Note:
Families are welcome to register together, but as baptism is an important personal decision, we ask that only children ages 11+ enroll. Children 10 and younger should register for a Family Baptism Class.

FAMILY BAPTISM

FAMILY

Family Baptism Class
Do you have a child in K- grade 5 (aged 10 and under) who wants to be baptized? Your first step is to assess their spiritual readiness. Second, we’ll ask you and your child to attend/view a Family Baptism class in preparation for the event. Contact the Kensington Kids (Kkids) Director at your campus for readiness guidelines, class details, and with any other questions.

BABY BAPTISM & DEDICATION

If your child is younger than five years old, we offer baptism or dedication ceremonies. Contact your Campus Coordinator with questions, and to find out the dates of upcoming parent classes and ceremonies.
