Baptism

At Brookside, we believe that baptism is intended for those who have already placed their faith in Jesus. Baptism is a meaningful step of obedience, publicly expressing your faith in Jesus and that Jesus’ work on the cross has been applied to you.

What is baptism?

When you're baptized, you take a meaningful step of obedience and publicly express that you have placed your faith in what Jesus has done for you. Your life becomes a spotlight, as if to say, “Yes, I’ve placed my faith in Jesus and want to follow Him.” Your baptism displays the fresh and unique way the beauty of the gospel has been applied to you - a visible picture of the work Jesus has done for you and in you. 

Your immersion in the water is a picture of our burial with Christ in His death. Our emergence from the water is a picture of being raised to new life with Jesus because of His resurrection.

Every child is unique and kids are ready for baptism at different ages. We teach about the importance of baptism at the 4th and 5th grade level. Here are a couple of questions to help guide your thoughts, prayers, and conversations as you and your child consider baptism.
