"Very often, some of those who really do believe in Jesus neglect to avow their faith in the Lord’s appointed way. Nothing is more plainly taught in the New Testament than that it is the duty of every believer in Christ to be baptized." - Charles Haddon Spurgeon 


All believers are called to profess their faith in Christ and commitment to Christ's Church through the waters of baptism.  While baptism is not necessary for salvation, baptism is an ordinance which was commanded by the Lord Jesus Himself (Matthew 28:18-20).  We thank God for your desire to be obedient to the Lord in pursuing baptism.

How to Be Baptized at NorthCreek Church

2. Read the baptism booklet, complete the application, and write a draft of your testimony using the Personal Testimony Worksheet.
