Baptism is one of the most important events in the life of a Christian.
If you've made a commitment to Christ, it's time to take the next step and make your decision known.
Baptism is the best way to express your faith and reflect your life change. Find out more about baptism
through Starting Point, Pathway, or contact a Lakeside minister.

What Do I Wear?
We encourage you to wear some sort of dark athletic shorts with the tshirt that we
provide. Make sure to bring a change of clothes and towel.
Where Do I Go?
Baptisms are held in the auditorium in any of our services at Lakeside. Meet your
assigned pastor in the lobby 15 minutes before the service you are getting baptized
in. Invite family and friends to watch and encourage you in your new journey.
Baptisms are offered at any of our service times: 9:00, 10:15, or 11:30. Check-in
begins 15 minutes before.
For information on scheduling a baptism at another time please contact us.
Who Will Baptize Me?
We invite you to have the person who led you to Christ or someone who encouraged you
along the way to baptize you. Or if you would prefer, one of the Lakeside ministers
would be happy to assist with the baptism.
Are There Any Prerequisites For Baptism?
Jr High and High School Age: In order to be baptized, please talk with
your Student Minister or small group leader to set up a conversation.
Children Grade 1-5: Jesus & Me (J.A.M) is a recommended class
for students to attend with their parents in order to be baptized. If the child is
under the age of 8 it is suggested that he or she meet with a minister before being
baptized. This is suggested so that the child will fully understand the decision he
or she is making.
Baby/Child Dedication is available for children younger than Grade
1 to allow parents the privilege of deciding to raise their kids to love and honor
Jesus Christ. For information on scheduling a baby dedication, contact us.
