WHAT DOES BAPTISM MEAN?
It's not just a tradition. It's a step of faith.

If you’re ready for this public demonstration of your personal devotion, join us for our next baptism event is on April 15, 2018. Registration is opening soon. We can’t wait to celebrate with you!

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.
