At Mars Hill, we teach that baptism marks our participation in Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection, with the church, to serve the world.
Our community observes baptism together. Our baptism service celebrates with those who seek to make a public profession of faith, reminds those who previously have been baptized of their own baptism, and recommits our support of each other as we live faith personally within community. For these reasons, this service takes place during our regular 10am Gathering, rather than as a separate event for those being baptized.
Interested In Being Baptized?
Those who are in the process of discerning whether or not baptism is the next step in their faith journey must participate in a required baptism class.
The class is for “all-ages”, meaning the content and experience is designed to be as inclusive as possible of all age-groups and learning styles. Parents are required to participate with their son or daughter if they are middle school aged or younger.
The next Baptism Sunday will be on Easter – April 12. If you’re considering being baptized, please join us for our Exploring Baptism class where you’ll be able to learn more and discern whether this is the right next step on your faith journey. A light lunch will be provided.
