Journey at Westwinds
Journey for kids, teens, and adults exists to partner in our mission to Shadow God, Build the Church, and Heal the World. We accomplish this by providing opportunities to get connected, develop personal and spiritual growth, and care for one another through relationships.

That’s a great question. Baptism isn’t something that anyone should feel forced to do. Each person should only do it when they’re ready. Having said that, some people worry that they have to live perfectly from now on. Some even have expressed “there are some things that I need to get out of my life before I get baptized.” It’s great when we want to bring our lives in line with Christ’s instructions, but being baptized is more about starting the journey with Jesus than having everything in your life in order. Things start to fall into place in good time. So relax. Baptism is about celebrating God’s forgiveness and the new journey ahead.
What is my next step in the process of “taking the plunge” to get Baptized?
To get started you, fill out the online Baptism Registration form prior to the first of two preparatory meetings. The first meeting will be to lay the historical and biblical foundation of Baptism as well as provide some reflection questions about the step you are about to take in your faith journey. The second meeting will be to discuss your answers to the reflective questions as well as provide the needed information for the day of your Baptism. Both are necessary to attend.
