Baptism

We love baptisms at Christ Church London. They are a great opportunity for us to celebrate people who have found faith in Jesus, and the difference he has made in their lives.

Through baptism, we re-enact the death and resurrection of Jesus. Being lowered into the water identifies us with his death, leaving behind our old lives. Being raised out of the water identifies us with Jesus’ resurrection, and the promise of new life.

Baptism is important because it’s a public demonstration and celebration of the new life found in Jesus. Through baptism, we re-enact the death and resurrection of Jesus. Being lowered into the water identifies us with his death, leaving behind our old lives. Being raised out of the water identifies us with Jesus’ resurrection, and the promise of new life. To find out more, check out the talk below.

Since we believe that baptism is something through which people commit to the church, and the church commits to you, it’s our policy to only baptise people who are part of our church. We hold baptism services several times a year. If you’d like to know more, or find out the next opportunity to get baptised, please speak to your service leader.

“Apart from first becoming a Christian, baptism has to be the most significant event in my life. Baptism was a re-commitment of the relationship that first began when I accepted Christ – to proclaim that I have indeed died and been born again in Christ; a new and living creation.” – Beverly, baptised at Christ Church London.
