Water Baptism, Weddings & Marriage and Child Dedication
Here you will find information about the meaning & significance of water baptism and baby dedication, as well as details about weddings and marriage mentoring at Gateway Church.
Water baptism is an event that began in bible times, as a sign of repentance: turning away from sin and turning towards God. After Jesus came He commanded that the church should baptize new believers in Him.
Go then, to all people everywhere and make them my disciples, baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. – Matthew 28:19-20
Weddings & Marriage
We take weddings and the marriage relationship seriously because we believe that marriage is a covenant commitment for life, and that the security of the family is dependent upon the health of the marriage.
In the midst of all that is involved in raising children, we invite you to take a moment to focus on what really matters most.
No one will have more influence on your child than you. We believe that what happens at home is more important than what happens at church and it is our hope that we can partner with you from the very beginning. We want to be your biggest fans, your strongest supporters, and your trusted guides as you raise your child to know what it means to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Child dedication is an opportunity for new parents to focus today on what will affect their child’s future the most. It is an act of the parents to dedicate themselves to the will and ways of God for their family.
We believe that it is good and biblical to dedicate our children to the Lord, with the intention that we will teach them to serve Him all their lives, and that God will use them in great ways for His plans and purposes.
Note: This is not infant baptism. If you have questions please feel free to contact one of the pastors. They are happy to help!
