Baptism for Kids
The Bible describes baptism as an act that declares your personal faith in Jesus as Lord & Savior. In our church, when a child has reached an age where they can express their own faith, we invite them to be baptized.
We want every baptism experience to be meaningful and one they’ll remember for years to come. For these reasons, we feel that kids are typically ready for baptism starting in 3rd grade.
If your child has expressed an interest in baptism, we’d love for them to join us for a First Steps baptism class. At First Steps, kids gain a greater understanding of what it means to follow Jesus and the importance of baptism as a step in that direction.
First Steps is a prerequisite for children who want to be baptized at NorthPointe. To make the class as beneficial as possible for your child, we ask that at least one parent or guardian attend. The information you’ll receive at First Steps will help equip you as you talk with your kids about baptism.
To make it more convenient, we’ll schedule a personal First Steps appointment for you and your child. To schedule an appointment, click on the sign-up button below and someone will contact you soon.
