Baptism | New Covenant Worship Center

About Baptism

Baptism is an important step of obedience that shows others we have personally trusted Jesus for our salvation. Jesus was baptized when He was on the earth, and we do this to follow His example. When Christians are baptized, they are submerged under water to identify with the death and burial of Jesus and raised out of the water to identify with His resurrection. We believe that water baptism is a public declaration of three important things: you are a follower of Jesus Christ, you are beginning a changed life in Christ, and you are part of a new family.

Are You Ready To Be Baptized?


We do baptisms on the fourth Sunday of each month.


Water baptism is a time of celebration and public declaration of new life in Christ.  Bring your friends and family with you to church on the day of your baptism so you can celebrate together.


You can schedule your baptism in Step One of Growth Track, or with a member of our Prayer Team.  You can also email us to schedule your baptism or just show up the day we do baptisms!  We’ll give you a baptism bag with a t-shirt to wear and a towel for afterwards.  We’ll also mail a copy of your baptism certificate and a video of it on DVD for you to keep.
