Believers Baptism is at the core of what a Baptist Church is. We believe that baptism should be something that an individual chooses to do once they've made a commitment to follow Jesus. This means that someone doesn't have to be an adult to be baptised, but they do have to have made a decision to follow Jesus for themselves, regardless of age.
Baptism signifies the change that has already occured in someone; it doesn't make us a Christian, but instead shows God and other people that we're committed to him.
Instead of baptising children, we do something known as infant dedication. This is a special service where we thank God for the new life of a baby, and where the parents and godparents make promises about how they'll bring up their child. As a Church, we also promise to offer the family support, acceptance and love. If you're the parent of a young child and would like to explore Infant Dedication, please contact a member of the leadership team via that contact us page.
