We believe baptism is an important step of obedience for every follower of Jesus (Matthew 28:18-20). We practice believer's baptism by immersion, and it is one of the requirements for membership at Oakwood. Those who have been baptized by immersion as a believer at another church do not have to be baptized again at Oakwood. You can find answers to common questions about baptism in the sidebar. If you have additional question, please contact the church to talk with one of the pastors.
Throughout the year we take opportunities to celebrate baptism together as a church. During the warmer months we celebrate baptisms outdoors at local lake. We also provide opportunities for baptism during worship services at Oakwood in the colder months.
We are excited you are interested in publicly proclaiming your faith in Jesus Christ through baptism. If you would like to participate in the next baptism celebration, contact the church office to schedule a time to meet with Pastor Don.
