Scheduling Baptism

If your child has made a salvation decision and would like to be baptized, our Children’s Ministry team would like to connect with you. We schedule baptisms during most Worship services. Please call 901-347-5763 for more details.

Questions About Salvation/Baptism

Many children ask questions related to their personal salvation experience long before they are ready to become a Christian. The questioning process may begin years before the child is ready to proceed with a decision to follow Jesus as his/her personal Lord and Savior. When your child asks questions, please do your best to answer him/her as honestly as possible. Remember, you are developing his/her understanding and aiding in the spiritual maturing process. Here are a few sample questions:

  • How can I get baptized?
  • What does it mean to be a Christian?
  • When can I get baptized?
  • What is sin?
  • Why did Jesus have to die on the cross?

As you answer these and other related questions, it is a good idea to point out verses in The Bible and allow your child to read them. This will help the child by remembering what The Bible says.
