The Bible teaches that baptism by immersion in water is an outward sign of an inward work. Baptism has no saving virtue in itself. Jesus is our only Savior. But those who love Him will follow Him in baptism to signify their decision to accept Him as their Savior. “Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life." ... And just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious power of the Father, now we also may live new lives.” - Romans 6:4
On Sunday, April 25th, our third and fourth grade students, along with their parents, have been
invited to be baptized. The Baptismal Service at Desert Chapel church will happen at the end of the regular 10:00 a.m. church service (approximately 11:00 a.m.). Students (and parents) need only bring a change of clothes and a towel.
Wednesday (PS Stadium) and Friday (Desert Chapel) @ 4:00 - 5:30 p.m.

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday @ 2:45 - 4:00 p.m.
