Baptism

We are excited that you are interested in baptism!

We believe that baptism is an important step of obedience for every person who has accepted Christ as his or her savior. We consider it a privilege to walk with you as you take this next step on your spiritual journey.


 

What is the meaning of baptism?

It illustrates Christ's burial and resurrection

"Christ died for our sins... He was buried... and He rose again." - 1 Cor. 15:3-4

"For when you were baptized, you were buried with Christ, and in baptism you were also raised with Christ." - Col. 2:12

It illustrates my new life as a Christian

"When someone becomes a Christian he becomes a brand new person inside. The old life has passed away and a new life has begun!" - 2 Cor. 5:17

"By our baptism then, we were buried with Him and shared His death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead... so also we may live a new life!" - Rom. 6:4

Baptism doesn't make you a believer - it shows that you already believe.

Baptism does not "save" you, only your faith in Christ does that.

Baptism is like a wedding ring - it's the outward symbol of the commitment you make in your heart.

"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith... it is the gift of God - not by works, so that no one can boast." - Ephesians 2: 8-9

 

Children's Baptism

This is a section devoted to baptism for kids who are in 2nd through 5th grade! While baptism is AWESOME, it is NOT FOR EVERYONE. The Bible teaches that only people who trust in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior should be baptized. This means baptism is not for infants.

Every child who wants to be baptized at TVCC must take the TVCC Baptism Orientation with their parents. Dates for this class TBD.
