Begin: Baptism



Matthew 28:18-20 —Jesus came to them and said,“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Fatherand of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Who should be baptized?

Baptism is an important step of obedience for every person who has accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior (Matthew 28:19). We are excited that you are interested in being baptized at Westside Church.

How and why should you be baptized?

Westside Church believes that those who have accepted Jesus Christ astheir Savior should be fully immersed in water baptism, just as Christ himself demonstrated. (Matthew 3:13-17) The act of baptism is an outward sign of an inward work in your life. When you go down into the water it shows to the world that you are following Jesus with your life.

When should you be baptized?

Water baptism should be the first step of faith you take after receiving Jesus Christ as your personal Savior (Acts 2:41). It is important that each individual fully understand baptism and its significance in their life.

  • Children in grades 3 to 8 need to contact their Classroom Pastor for information and complete a Baptism Application at least two weeks prior to being baptized. Children must be at least 8 years of age to be baptized and be fully able tounderstand the meaning of baptism.
  • All candidates younger than 18 must have a parent’s signature on their Baptism Application.
