The members will be encouraged to talk with their parents and decide if they wish to make their Confession of Faith and be baptized into the fellowship of the church.
If you are an adult and would like to be baptized this day, please contact the office by April 17. The Christian Church (DOC) recognizes and celebrates all forms of baptism as equal and complete, including infant baptism. Re-baptism is not a requirement of membership
