WHAT ABOUT INFANT BAPTISM?
We do not baptize infants at UBC, however, we do believe that having a special time set aside to bless and dedicate your child is honoring to the Lord. If you are interested in dedicating your baby or child in a special part of our service, please contact us.

Baptism - Your Next Step
Baptism is intended only for those who have professed faith in Jesus Christ and can give sufficient testimony to the basics of Christian beliefs. We baptize by immersion (i.e. we put your whole body under the water and bring you back up) because it is not only the original significance of the word but also best symbolizes the reality to which baptism points—our death and resurrection in Christ.
If you have not been baptized following salvation and are interested in taking this step of obedience we encourage you to contact us so we can assist you with this important celebration. To help prepare you, we will schedule you to meet with an elder. The meeting is an opportunity to discuss the biblical significance of baptism, frequently asked questions and gives you an opportunity to share your testimony with our leadership.
Once you've met with our elders, we'll schedule a time to videotape your salvation story and confession of Christ so it can be played at your baptism. We'll also schedule a date and let you know so you can invite anyone who is important to you to be there.
