Baptism is an outward expression of an inward decision to follow Christ, and a powerful act of obedience.  It’s your chance to get up in front of family, friends and the our church body to say “Yes!  I have decided to follow Christ!”  And it’s a powerful thing to witness!  Whether you’re considering being baptized (congratulations!), or you want to join the Orchard Community family in celebrating, we hope you’ll plan to join us for our next baptism.

When? 

Baptism ceremonies are held twice a year.  Baptism classes will be held 1-2 weeks prior to the baptism event.  Please see the schedule below and check the church calendar for upcoming dates and times.

How?  A one-time class is required for everyone wishing to be baptized.  You will also be asked to share your personal testimony of how you came to trust Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.  You can download a PDF document “Preparing and Telling Your Life Story”, which will help you prepare your testimony.
