We are excited for you as you have shown interest in being baptizeD!

At Beachpoint, we have a simple process that will help you in making a decision to be baptized and in understanding what baptism means. 

Who should be Baptized? 

If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, then you are ready to be baptized. Just like a bride and groom show others their love for one another by wearing wedding bands, your baptism is your opportunity to show others that you have accepted Christ and are now walking with Him. Because Jesus instructed us to be baptized, baptism is an act of obedience. 

What does Baptism symbolize? 

Baptism is a way of showing others that you have entered into a relationship with Jesus Christ. It symbolizes what took place in your heart at the time of salvation: 

  • Accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. 

  • Shared in His death and resurrection, illustrated by going under the water (dead to your old life), then rising again (new life). 

  • Were symbolically washed clean, and sins were forgiven by His death on the cross. 



Download and print the “Baptism Notes.” Watch “Going Public” by Pastor Andy Stanley and take notes. This message will help you gain a better understanding of the history of baptism and its significance today. 

Watch Going Public



You will have a short meeting with a pastor to talk through what you learned from the video and discuss the meaning of baptism. It will also be an opportunity for you to share why you are choosing to be baptized and talk about any final questions you have concerning baptism. 



Baptisms take place during one of the Sunday services or at our annual beach baptisms and are a time of celebration!
