FAQs

1. What is baptism?

Baptism is an outward expression of an inward change. It’s a public declaration of how Jesus changed your life. Being baptized shows others that you’ve decided to follow Jesus, and allows them to celebrate this decision with you (Acts 16:31-34).

2. Why should I be baptized?

Obedience to Jesus shows we believe and follow Him. (1 John 2:3). Because Jesus went public about His love for us, we can go public about our love for Him. Being baptized shows that we turn away from a life of sin toward Jesus, the only one who can change us (Acts 2:38-41).

3. When’s the best time to be baptized?

For everyone who decides to follow Jesus, baptism is the next step. Anyone who commits his or her life to following Jesus is ready to be baptized (Acts 8:12).

4. Do you baptize kids?

As parents, we can help point our kids to Jesus, but they are the ones to decide if they will commit their lives to Him (Romans 10:9). Baptism follows a person’s decision to trust Jesus for his or her salvation and commitment to follow Him (Acts 10:47-48). At FSC, we will baptize kids as young as Kindergarten, who have expressed the decision on their own to follow Jesus and who have expressed this understanding in our baptism class.

5. Do I need to be baptized again?

There will be seasons of growth and greater periods of spiritual maturity – but if you have made a decision to follow Christ and been baptized, there’s no need to be baptized again.
