If you are interested in finding out more about us, what we believe, our mission and our philosophy of ministry, join us for Discovering ChristWay. If you would like to join with us in ministry by becoming a partner (formerly known as a “member”) of ChristWay, be sure to join us in the ChristWay Theatre for our next class. There, you will have the chance to meet the elders, share your story, tour the campus and to discover opportunities to connect and serve.

We love to celebrate changed lives. Jesus told us that it's the very next thing we should do after we choose to follow Him. Baptism doesn't save you--doesn't forgive you of sins--because only Jesus can do that, but baptism is a public celebration of that moment when you said, "Jesus, I trust you." You don't have to be perfect. You don't have to have your life together. You just have to follow Him, repent and be baptized (Acts 2:38).
I am determined to obey God’s word. This is among my first acts of obedience.
“And now, why do you wait? Rise and be baptized and wash away your sins, calling on his name.” Acts 22:19
I personally believe that Jesus died to pay for my sin and rose to offer me new life.
“Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life.” Romans 6:3-4
I have died to my old life and rise up to a new life surrendered to Jesus. As Jesus rose from the dead to be with the Father, so will I.
“…having been buried with him in baptism, in which you were also raised with him through faith in the powerful working of God, who raised him from the dead.” Colossians 2:12
I am publicly showing my commitment to be united to Jesus Christ and His community of faith.
“For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.” 1 Corinthians 12:13
Our preference would be a ChristWay staff minister. Other options might include a ChristWay partner or head of household. Any exceptions would need to be discussed with our elders in advance of the baptism class. In all cases, the person baptizing will need to attend the class as well.
