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. Contact the church office at 630.232.7068 or Jan Bauserman at jbauserman@fbcg.com for the next scheduled baptism. 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: Church Office, 630.232.7068

 

Also available at the Welcome Center on either campus.

BAPTISM SERVICES

Our next baptism service will take place on Sunday, August 28, 2016, coinciding with our annual church picnic.

BAPTISM CLASSES

Our baptism classes are held the week before a scheduled baptism service, which is to be determined.
