Next Kids Baptism Workshop TBD

Baptism is your opportunity to show others you’ve accepted Christ and are now walking with Him. If you haven’t yet made this decision, we’d love to talk to you and answer any questions you may have.

If you’ve accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, then you’re ready to be baptized!

What does baptism symbolize?

Baptism is a way of showing others you’ve entered into a relationship with Jesus Christ. The act of being baptized symbolizes what took place in your heart at the time of salvation:

  • Accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.

  • Sharing in His death and resurrection, illustrated by going under the water (dead to your old life), then rising again (new life).

  • Being symbolically washed clean, and sins forgiven by His death on the cross.

Who should be baptized?

Christians believe that the blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sin. Therefore, salvation occurs only when a person places his or her faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as the sufficient payment for his or her sin.

If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, then you are ready to be baptized!

Why is baptism important?

Because Jesus instructed us to be baptized, baptism is an act of obedience. While it is not necessary for salvation, it demonstrates submission to God. We fully immerse under water to baptize at Fairfax Church because we believe Scripture shows that Jesus modeled that for us as the way to publicly acknowledge our faith in Him.

How do I get baptized?

The baptism process at Fairfax Church has been designed to be both simple and meaningful. Here is what you need to do:

  1. Sign up for our next baptism event. Someone will confirm your registration with you and answer any questions you may have.

  2. Get baptized during our Baptism Weekend and celebrate your new life in Christ!

Email if you have any questions.

What about baptism for children?

Our Fairfax Kids team wants to help equip and guide your child to understand what it means to have a personal relationship with Jesus! Children interested in baptism are invited to attend our Fairfax Kids Baptism Workshops, which is for kids who want to:

  • Discover more about becoming a part of God’s family through trusting in His Son, Jesus.

  • Publicly declare their decision to trust Jesus through baptism

  • Strengthen their growing faith in Jesus by trusting Him as their Lord and Savior

Email if you have any questions.
