Baptism is the outward action that represents  the invisible work of the Holy Spirit upon our hearts. It is a symbol of God's promise to us that just as water washes away dirt from the body, Christ's blood washes away our sins completely! (Heidelberg Catechism, Lords' Day 26, QA 69). Baptism also makes a statement that we belong to God and that He will faithfully love us as His children.

We baptize new believers and also the children of believers as a sign of God's covenant with them, trusting that God will begin the work in them that leads them to eventually make profession of their faith our of their own commitment to Christ!

Profession of Faith

If you have already been baptized but desire to celebrate your faith, or to rededicate your life to Christ, we would love to celebrate with you in a Profession of Faith! With a mentor from your life, you will read the book "I Believe". It is an 8-week study that walks through some of the bigger concepts of the Christian faith, and helps you to develop your own profession of faith statement. Then we get to celebrate the joy that comes with it as a church family! This is available to all ages, and takes place on the same mornings as baptism. If you would like to do Profession of Faith at Alive, contact Susan.
