Baptism

We’re so excited that you want to commit to being a follower of Jesus! It’s what we’re about here at Lakeside — discovering Jesus and fully following in his steps as we live out our faith in the everyday stuff of life. We’re certainly not perfect at it, but together we’re helping each other figure it all out.

One of the first steps in following Jesus is being baptized — getting wet. It sounds weird but it’s really a very powerful spiritual experience. It’s a living symbol of the neat change that happens to us as we live each day with Jesus. When we go down into the water it’s like we’re dying to our old way of being — our old self, and coming up out of the water as this new person — the real you! It’s not magic but it is mysterious. God is at work in us as we participate in this beautiful, living, experiential practice. So, who wouldn’t want that?
