Baptism

Dedicating your life to Christ is the most important decision you will ever make in your lifetime. We welcome you into the family of God and celebrate this first step in your life as a believer.

After receiving Christ as your Lord and Savior, the Scripture says we should be baptized as a public confession of our faith. At EFBC we believe in water baptism by immersion, in obedience to the Bible.

We also believe that you know the importance of baptism, we want to ensure you are ready for this amazing step in your christian walk. Please review the study guide and read the scriptures.

Baptism Study Guide

Your baptisms will be during an 11:00 am service after you have completed the study on the significance of it.

Women should wear shorts and a top, a “muumuu” style dress, or a swimsuit.  Men may wear a swimsuit.  Bring a change of clothes, a towel, and a plastic bag for your wet clothes.  You may change into your baptism robe in the baptism rooms.

Arrive early and, if you have not already done so, select a baptism robe (a.k.a. “choir robe”).  Change into your baptism robe and wait in the Baptistery area. You will be accompanied by a church member and you will spend time in prayer before being baptized.

No, but you can if you want to.  At the beginning of the service, Pastor will briefly explain the meaning of baptism.  You will wait at the edge of the pool for your turn to be baptized.  Pastor will introduce you, briefly lower you just under the water, and then you can leave the pool, dry off, and watch the others.

Anyone!  We encourage you to invite all your relatives and friends to attend your baptism.

YES!  If each family member understands fully the meaning of baptism, and each one has personally placed his/her trust in Christ for salvation, we encourage families to be baptized on the same day.  It is a wonderful expression of commitment.

However, it is important to remember that baptism is a personal statement of faith, not a family tradition.  It is usually not wise to delay your baptism while waiting for other family members to accept Christ.  This puts undue pressure on them and delays your obedience.
