Questions About Baptism

I was baptized before, should I be baptized again?

If you were baptized as a baby, child, or before you trusted in Christ, then yes, you should. 

 Do I need to have it all together before I’m baptized?

No—being baptized doesn’t mean you’re perfect. If you are trusting Christ for salvation, you’re ready to be baptized.

How do I know if my child is ready to be baptized?

In order to participate in baptism, kids should be old enough to tell their life change story and the impact Jesus has had in their life. Conversations with kids generally happen around the age of 8. As a parent, you know your child best and may want to encourage your kid to wait even longer until they’re mature enough to make the decision for themselves. We do not baptize children without their parent’s consent.

 What if my family doesn’t approve of me being baptized?

Baptism is a personal choice between you and God to publicly share your story. If your family doesn’t approve or understand, we would love to talk to you about how to have a conversation with them. 

Does baptism forgive my sins?

No—trusting Jesus forgives your sins. Your Baptism is a public declaration of your decision to trust Jesus.

 What do I need to do in order to be baptized at Solitude?

Contact a staff member and they will be there to guide you through the process.
