Baptism is a celebration of what God has done in the life of a Christ follower. Matthew 28:19-20 teaches us that followers of Christ are to be baptized and that it is one of the first steps in this life-long journey of discipleship.
At Oak Hills, we recognize that people come from many different church backgrounds, some of which practice infant baptism. While we want to attempt to honor that experience, we also want to attempt to tie our baptism services as closely as possible to the biblical tradition.
In the bible, men and women were baptized following their belief in Jesus. Following the biblical example, soon after a person has decided to receive Christ into their life, they are encouraged to be baptized.
Therefore, if you were baptized as an infant, we would encourage you to be baptized now as a believer. Call the church office at (916) 983-0181, or contact Lorraine Rothenburg if you would like to sign up.
