Being baptized is a great next step once you've started following Jesus. It is an outward symbol of the inward commitment to follow Jesus. Baptism does not make you a believer, it shows that you already are one! Baptism does not “save” you, only your faith in Jesus does that. Baptism is like a wedding ring – it’s the outward symbol of the commitment you made in your heart.


Because of this, we think a celebration is in order whenever a part of the Westbridge family makes this public declaration!


Why be Baptized?
What does it mean to be Baptized?
How are we to be Baptized?
Who should be Baptized?
When are we to be Baptized?
What about being Baptized twice?
Can a family be Baptized together?
Will I have to say anything?


Water Baptism is a decision that people make for themselves once they have started following Jesus and is a much more meaningful and memorable experience when done at an age of awareness.  While Water Baptism is a personal decision, Child Dedication is a statement made by parents on behalf of their kids!
