Baptism is an important step of obedience that shows others we personally trust Jesus for our salvation. Jesus was baptized when He was on the earth, and we do this to follow His example. We believe that water baptism is a public declaration of three important things: you are a follower of Jesus Christ, you are beginning a changed life in Christ, and you are part of a new family. When we baptize at ECC, individuals are submerged under water to identify with the death and burial of Jesus and raised out of the water to identify with His resurrection.

You have an option to sign-up to be baptized during our weekend services as a way of being publicly recognized and supported in your decision. Alternatively we are now offering open baptism times. Open Baptism allows individuals that would prefer a smaller setting the opportunity to gather with an ECC pastor and their friends, family, or Small Group and be baptized during a 30-minute session outside of one of our weekend services.
