Worship Services


One of our first responsibilities as Christians is to “make disciples and baptizing them” (Matthew 28:19). We can baptize someone any Sunday of the year, but also have special days where we invite people for baptisms.

Be Baptized

In the summer months (May-August), we go to the beach and baptize in the gulf waters. If you're interested in our next beach baptisms, please click below to contact Pastor Faith.
