Believers’ Baptism

An external symbol of an internal decision

We are here to assist you when you are ready to take the step of baptism.

Baptism is an external symbol of an internal spiritual decision to believe the gospel, repent from sin and receive the gift of eternal life. If you are ready to take this step, plan to be part of the baptism service of your choice.

Baptismal services are conducted inside our Sanctuary during the Fall and Spring. We also have an outdoor baptismal service during the summer.  You will be required to attend a one hour pre-baptismal class about one week prior to the service.

Our baptismal services include:

  • Worship and singing
  • A personal statement of faith by each candidate for baptism
  • A “sponsor” (person who played a significant role in candidate’s spiritual life) who enters the water with the candidate, if desired

Contact: Jan Bauserman at or 630.232.7068 x110.

Also available at the Welcome Center on either campus.


Our next baptism service will take place on Saturday, March 4 at 5:00 PM at our West Campus.


Our baptism classes are held Monday, February 27 at 7:00 PM in West Campus Room 103 and the Cornerstone Room.
