Your decision to be baptized is in obedience to Christ and an important step in your spiritual life.

What does it mean to be baptized and be part of a local church?

Baptism is a public declaration of your faith in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. It is a symbol of the believer’s identification with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection. In baptism, the believer is testifying that he was “in Christ” when He died on the cross, that he was buried with Him, and that he has arisen to newness of life because of the resurrection of Jesus Christ.


In choosing to be identified with Christ and live in obedience to Him, it is essential for a believer to be part of a local church where he or she can be discipled. Being a member of a local church provides spiritual nourishment and edification, encouragement in Christian living, enablement for Christian service, accountability in your Christian testimony, and discipline should it be necessary.


The Baptismal and Membership Class is an 8-week course to prepare you for Believer’s Baptism and help you understand GCCP's DNA, core beliefs, ministries, and practices. 


All applicants for baptism are required to attend both the Baptismal and Membership Classes. Applicants for church membership are only required to attend the Membership Class.
