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.

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

FAMILY BAPTISM

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.
