Have you made a commitment to Christ?

Have you been considering baptism but not sure what it means? If you would like more information on baptism or would like to participate in the next service, the baptism class is the next step! It’s a great opportunity to ask questions, learn more about the history of baptism and what it means personally to take this step. Everyone is welcome to attend the class, even if you just want information about baptism. We only ask that you please let us know. Time and date of the next baptism class TBD.

Why Should I Be Baptized?

  • Believe and baptize are very closely linked. (Acts 2:40-41; 8:36-40; 10:48; 16:15; 16:33).
  • Jesus showed by example that we are to be baptized by being baptized himself (Matthew 3:13-17).
  • Baptism is understood to fulfill, in part, the command of Jesus to confess him before humanity (Matthew 10:32).
  • Baptism not only signifies resurrection to a new life in Christ, but it is also a public commitment to walk in Christ’s way. Baptism means we now belong to Christ.

Who Should Be Baptized?

  • All those who accept Christ as their personal Saviour and Lord should be baptized.

At Northview Community Church we wait until our children are old enough to believe and understand the true meaning of baptism before we baptize them.
For those seeking membership with Northview it is a requirement to be baptized as a believer, even if baptized as an infant.
