We believe baptism should take place when someone makes a personal faith commitment to be a disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ. The primary scriptures we use for our belief can be found in Matthew 28:18-20, Acts 2:36-47 and Romans 6:1-14. Baptism comes from the Greek word baptizo, meaning to dip, plunge or submerge. In light of that, we practice believer’s baptism by immersion. It is a symbol of being identified with Christ in his death, burial and resurrection. We do not see baptism as a means of salvation, but rather as a public declaration of commitment to follow Christ. Baptism at Chapel Pointe is a 3-step process where a person (1) attends a baptism class, (2) shares their story & (3) gets baptized.
