What is Baptism?Baptism starts with God. It is a sacred act in which He combines His life-giving Word and command to water. Through baptism, our Lord claims each of us as His son or daughter. A baptized individual begins a new relationship with God, receives forgiveness of sins, and is filled with the Holy Spirit to grasp His promises by faith. From Scripture we recognize “whoever believes and is baptized will be saved," (Mark 16:16, ESV). From our confessions “to be saved is to be delivered from sin, death and the devil, to enter into Christ’s Kingdom, and to live with Him forever.”
Baptisms at TrinityBaptisms take place during one of the following worship services:

Those who desire a baptism are asked to attend the Special Beginnings Baptism Class which is held throughout the year.
Special Beginnings Baptism ClassTrinity presents a single-session class for parents (members and non-members) of children to be baptized. The class will focus on the Biblical nature of baptism and will also focus on the spiritual development of the child. This class is presented by Dave Sheldon, Minister of Family Life.
Trinity believes that baptism is one of God’s gifts of love to us. One of the key points of this class is to provide assistance, instruction, and encouragement in the parent’s role as their child’s faith former.
