Getting baptized shows everyone your faith in Christ. Jesus not only got baptized himself, he commanded His followers to be baptized by the Church.

Why should I get baptized?

Baptism is an outward expression of inward change. It symbolizes the death of our “old self,” and the birth of our “new self,” which is our new life in Christ. We don’t believe baptism saves anyone, but it is commanded in scripture. (Matthew 28: 19-20)

When should I get baptized?

Baptism is designed to take place after someone gets saved. It should be noted that baptism doesn’t “finish” someone’s salvation, rather it’s the ultimate “going public,” showing the world you’ve been saved.

What does baptism look like at Brushy Creek?

Christians practice baptism in many different ways. At Brushy Creek, we believe the most biblically-faithful model is to be immersed in water after you have personally repented and trust in Christ for salvation.

Do you baptize children?

We do, although we want to make sure children fully grasp the decision to follow Jesus Christ. Brushy Creek Kids Minister Lizzi-Beth Spence can happily talk with you about it.
