Baptism at Woodmen

Baptism is a public display of a believer’s commitment to Christ. Baptism does not make a person a Christian but is symbolic of death to sin and resurrection to a new life in Christ. Baptism is by water immersion and is done after a person decides to follow Jesus Christ. Check out the teaching below to hear Pastor Josh teach on why we baptize. 

It is a joyful thing to see our children respond to Jesus, and when a child makes the decision to be baptized, we think it is a really big deal. That’s why we do things for kids who get baptized that we don’t do for adults. 6th grade and under, please email Woodmen Kids and they will be in contact with you about next steps.

Baptism for Adults

  • Begin the process by signing up for baptism, selecting your campus and desired service time. You’ll have an opportunity to tell us your story and how to best contact you.
  • A pastor will be in touch to get to know you and help prepare for baptism.
  • The week before your baptism, you’ll receive an email with the following details:
    Meet your baptizing pastor 30 minutes before the service by the baptismal at the front of the auditorium.
    Please prepare a 1-2 sentence statement on a 3x5 card telling why you are getting baptized. It will be read it right before your baptism. This will deeply encourage all of us in the church as we celebrate together.

What to wear: You will be baptized by water immersion, so please wear dark clothing that can get wet. Shorts are fine as long as they are modest. T- shirts and towels will be provided.

What to bring: You will need a change of clothes for after your baptism and a plastic bag for your wet clothing.

The baptisms are recorded. You will receive a link to the video, as well as a letter from the baptizing pastor and a certificate of baptism.
