At Harvest Bible Chapel, we believe that Christian baptism by immersion in water is a public identification with Jesus in his death, burial, and resurrection. Although baptism is not required for salvation, it is commanded of all believers and is for believers only. Scripture shows that individuals were baptized after receiving forgiveness of sin and placing their faith in Jesus. The act of baptism is symbolic of our spiritual union with Christ. If you would like to know more about the biblical teaching on baptism, feel free to watch this message from Pastor Todd. We have baptism services about every other month. Beforehand, we offer an orientation class for the candidates to ensure that they understand what baptism is all about and to help them prepare to share their story. If you are at least 12 years old and ready to take this crucial step of obedience in your walk with Christ, or if you are still considering baptism or have questions, we invite you to join us for our next orientation class.
We believe that the upcoming generation is not just the future of the church, but is the church now. As a result, we are committed to the discipleship and training of our young leaders. Through mentorship, spiritual disciplines, scriptural focus, and practical application, we provide hands on training that will prepare our Junior Leaders to work for Christ as they worship him throughout their lifetime.
