Christian baptism is a symbolic act that represents the new life one has found in following Jesus. It symbolizes the washing away of an old way of life. It symbolizes new birth into a life with Christ. It represents the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ and the new believer. Christian baptism is the outward sign of an inward change.
We encourage anyone who has chosen to follow Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior to be baptized. Because we believe baptism is a personal choice, we don’t baptize infants, but wait until children are old enough to make this decision. Baptism is not required for church membership; in fact, at Crossings, anyone who has decided to follow Jesus Christ and has become involved in the life of this church is considered a member.
