    First Kids Baptism
    The Bible teaches that baptism is an act of obedience for believers. We are delighted to walk with your child through this wonderful part of his/her life!

    Dedicating your life to Christ is the most important decision you will ever make in your lifetime. We welcome you into the family of God and celebrate this first step in your life as a believer.

    After receiving Christ as your Lord and Savior, the Scripture says we should be baptized as a public confession of our faith. At First Baptist Church we believe in water baptism by immersion, in obedience to the Bible.

    If your child would like to be baptized, please speak with Jimmy Gunn or call the church office at 210-226-0363
