Thank you for registering for water baptism. We look forward to meeting with you and sharing this important day with you.
We ask that each baptism candidate bring a change of clothes to wear while in the water. Please dress modestly and avoid any white or see through clothing. A towel is also recommended!
The Saturday of water baptism, Pastor Cheryl Koop will conduct a special baptism class to explain its meaning and answer any questions. Baptism takes place at English Bay during the warmer months (May-September), and indoors at our downtown location during the colder months (October-April). At the baptismal service, Pastor Dave will introduce you and then ask you if you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour. You will then be briefly lowered into the water, afterwards you may leave the water, dry off, and watch the others. Later you will be mailed a certificate of your baptism. We encourage you to invite all your relatives and friends to attend your baptism.
Other than stating publicly that you have accepted Christ you are not required to say anything. You will be given to opportunity to give a brief testimony, but the choice is yours.
