WHAT IS BAPTISM?
Once you commit your life to Jesus the next logical step in your journey is to get baptized.
Baptism is similar to wearing a wedding ring: simply wearing the ring doesn't make you married, but it does represent a moment in time in the past when you decided to enter that relationship. It tells everyone that you've committed yourself to another. In the same way, while baptism doesn't make you right with God, it does communicate that you've already entered into a relationship with Jesus and committed yourself to Him by faith.
UPCOMING BAPTISM ORIENTATION CLASSES*

When you're ready to go public with your faith, we're here to help. In order to be baptized at Lakeshore, you need to attend a Baptism Orientation Class. In this class, you will learn more about salvation, baptism, and what to expect in the process. You'll also have an opportunity to ask questions. *Please note: These orientations will be for the October 16 Baptism service
Upcoming 2022 Baptism Services
- Sunday, May 15, 9 & 11am
- Sunday, October 16, 9 & 11am
WHAT TO EXPECT
When you get baptized, you'll be given an opportunity to share your story at church. We encourage you to invite your family and friends to share this special moment with you. We have seen many examples of God using the stories shared at our Baptism Services to stir the hearts of those in attendance.
CAN MY CHILD BE BAPTIZED?
In order to fully understand and appreciate baptism, we ask kids to wait until they're at least 10 years old before pursuing baptism at Lakeshore.
Because baptism represents a decision that individuals make for themselves, we do not baptize infants here at Lakeshore. We offer Child Dedications as a way for parents to commit themselves to raising their kids in God-honoring ways. For more info on Child Dedications, contact our Children's Director, Jill Freese.
