Spring Baptism Service

Please join us for our Spring Baptism Service on Saturday, April 28 at 11am at Edgewater Baptist Church!

Baptism is a celebration! It is an opportunity to follow Jesus’ example and teaching by publicly proclaiming our identification with him in front of our church family. By being baptized, we announce that Jesus has washed away our sin and given us new life. It is a wonderful step of obedience in following Christ.

Baptism is celebrated three times a year at COTB and is open to every person who has surrendered to Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. Considering baptism? If you would like to learn more please contact Tiffany (tiffany.fang@thebelovedchurch.org).

Date: Saturday, April 28

Location: Edgewater Baptist Church 1401 W. Hollywood Ave.

Time: 11am

Questions: Email Tiffany (tiffany.fang@thebelovedchurch.org)
