Baptism is a very special moment on the journey of faith. It is a moment when God's presence and blessing meets us, and it is a moment when we make our personal commitment of faith in Jesus as Lord.
We delight in hearing about baptisms. We both record them and love hearing about stories of baptisms. Click here for the record of baptisms in 2019.

There are also baptism records for 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, and 2012. Visit our archive to read stories from these years.

Please contact us to share baptismal news or testimonies.

See our resource library for more information about baptism, including resources to help you prepare for your baptism.
