Baptism

What is Baptism?

Baptism is an outward sign of an inward change. It’s a sign that your old way of living is gone, and you are becoming a new person. Going under water symbolizes Jesus’ death and burial. Coming up out of the water symbolizes Jesus’ resurrection, or coming back to life.

Our baptisms are public opportunities for you to share your faith, and for your church, family, and friends to celebrate what God is doing in your life. We baptize to follow both Jesus’s example and his instructions to his followers.

Romans 6:4: We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.

Matthew 28:19-20: Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and 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.

Want to Be Baptized?

We offer all-campus baptisms in June and September each year. We are also here to help if you have questions or would like to understand more about baptism.

Frequent Questions

I've already been baptized. Should I be baptized again?

Your baptism should have signified you becoming a follower of Jesus, beginning a changed life, and uniting with a new family. If your baptism did not reflect this change of life, then you should be baptized again.

Can my child be baptized?

We will baptize anyone age 8 and over who understands what baptism symbolizes and wants to make that personal public declaration. We encourage parents to partner with PCC Kids and PCC Students to guide your children through these decisions of faith and to determine when they’re ready. You and your child can learn more about baptism at an upcoming Kids 101 event.

Can my infant be baptized?

Throughout the New Testament, the Bible teaches that baptism is a public expression of worship symbolizing the new life we have when we follow Jesus. In the Bible we see that Jesus’ parents dedicated him to the Lord (Luke 2:22–40), and he was later baptized as an adult (Matthew 3:16–17).

At PCC we offer Child Dedication. Child Dedication is a special time for parents to acknowledge that their child is a gift from God. This is a separate service (or time set aside during a Sunday service) where parents commit to raising their child where they are learning about God and guiding them toward a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, and the church commits to partnering with parents in this. Child Dedication is offered two times a year in the spring and fall. View upcoming Child Dedications on our Events Page.If you have questions about Child Dedication, contact children@pccwired.net.
