We are so excited that you are considering baptism for your child! Every child can have a personal relationship with Jesus, and in GT Kids, we encourage each child to make a decision to follow Him. Our children are encouraged not just to learn about Jesus, but to learn from Him by walking with Him every day.
As you discern if your child is ready to be water baptized, here are some questions to ask your child. The following answers show that your child understands water baptism.
When did you decide to follow Jesus and become born again?
Your child should have a specific memory of when he or she understood what Jesus did, and that he or she needs Jesus in their life. It may have been at church, at home, or even when they were alone.
What does it mean to be water baptized?
I am following Jesus, and I want everyone to know! It is a picture of what Jesus has done on the inside of me.
Why do you want to be water baptized?
Because Jesus was baptized and he tells us to be baptized too. Because I want to follow Him. Because I am born again.
Baptism Bash! is a special service where we celebrate through baptism the decisions children have made to put their trust in Jesus as their personal Savior. Family, friends, and small group leaders all join together to help celebrate this decision in a big way!
