Frequently Asked Questions

When is baptism?

We baptize regularly at Preston Trail.

How do you baptize?

We baptize by immersion, or placing a person under water.

Whom do you baptize?

Many Christians who were baptized as infants ask if they need to be baptized again. Our answer is to follow the biblical order: first follow Christ, then be baptized as a follower of Christ. We believe baptism is available to anyone who has made the decision to place their faith in Jesus Christ as their Savior. (See Acts 2:38; 8:12-13; 22:16.)

Why should I be baptized?

To follow the example of Jesus (Matthew 3:13-17)
To obey Jesus (Matthew 28:18-20)
As a sign of loyalty to Jesus (Acts 16:32-34, Acts 18:8)
To portray the death and resurrection of Jesus (Romans 6:3-4)
To enter into community and covenant with other believers (Acts 2:41, 44)
