What is baptism?
Baptism is an act of obedience—being immersed in water in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—symbolizing the believer's faith in a crucified, buried, and risen Savior. It also represents the believer's death to sin, burial of the old life, and resurrection to a new life in Christ Jesus.
Why be baptized?
Baptism itself does not save us. We are saved by grace alone, through faith alone. However, when we believe the gospel, it should be our joy to be baptized in order to glorify God by following Jesus' example and obeying his command.
Is your child ready?
We are so excited that you are considering baptism for your child. Every child can have a personal relationship with Jesus. At Bridgeway, we encourage and give opportunities for children to make a decision to follow Jesus. Our children are encouraged to not just learn about Jesus, but learn from Jesus by walking with him every day.
We advise parents to wait until their child is asking to be water baptized. This is usually a good indication that they are ready to be baptized and that it will be a spiritual milestone in their life.
