    Why Baptism?
    Frequently asked questions

    At Parkview, we practice baptism of the repentant believer by immersion in water. We do immersion baptism because that's the way Jesus did it, the New Testament church did it, and we are commanded to do it.

    Jesus told us in the Great Commission to, "go and teach and make disciples and immerse." (Matthew 28:19 - literal Greek translation)

    During immersion baptism, there is nothing magical in the water, and the act of baptism doesn’t save you. However, we do believe it is such an important first act of obedience that we require it for membership.

    Just as baby dedications are a way for parents to show their commitment to raising their children according to God’s Word, baptism is an outward symbol of the internal commitment made by every believer. It is but a symbol of our new life in Jesus Christ.

    Do we believe that you will only get into heaven if you are baptized by immersion? Certainly not!! We just really want to do it the way that Jesus did!

    For more info, you can read BAPTISM: WHY IMMERSION? by Pastor Tim Harlow.

    If God is leading you to be baptized, we would be happy to help you take that step.

    Please consider the following options:

    Baptism During a Worship Service: This is such a blessing for everyone! Baptisms are scheduled during all of the weekend worship services upon request.

    Baptism Following a Worship Service: If you prefer to have a more intimate baptism experience, you can be baptized after one of the weekend services.

    Weeknight Baptism: Occasionally we do baptisms during the week if this better fits your schedule.
