What should I wear for baptism?
If you are planning to be baptized at LPC, here are some things for you to know. You will be provided with a black Going Public T-shirt that you can wear and take home. You will want to bring black or dark colored shorts, a towel, a change of clothes and a plastic bag to place your wet clothes in after you are baptized.
When do I arrive?
On the day of your baptism, you will want to arrive approximately 30 minutes early so that one of our trained baptism hosts can walk you through the baptism process. You will be shown where to change, shown where to enter and exit, told when to be ready. We will make sure all of your questions are answered.
What do I do when I arrive?
A trained baptism host will walk you through your Sunday morning process. If you don’t know who that is for the day, you can find your baptism host by asking the person who scheduled you for baptism.
Who will/can baptize me?
We believe that baptism and communion are the two ordinances given to the church in the New Testament. Based on that, anyone who executes baptism needs to represent not only what we believe, but be living that out in a community of believers. Any of Lifepoint staff can baptize as well as any of our LifeGroup leaders, because of their function in our local body. On occasions, someone who has been ordained by another church Body is allowed to baptize as well. Those opportunities are considered on a case-by-case basis.
Who should I invite?
Everyone! This is a special time in your life as you go public with your faith for the first time.
Will I have to say anything?
After you are in the baptism pool you will be asked if you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior. You’ll respond with “yes”. Other than that you are not expected to say anything.
If you have any other questions you can call the church office at 614.840.0333.
