Get Baptized

Welcome! We are excited for you to learn more about baptism. At OHC, we believe that all followers of Jesus should declare their faith to others through water immersion. This is baptism - being immersed in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit! Scripture teaches that baptism is an act of obedience to Christ, and an outward demonstration of an inward commitment to Christ.

We would love to help guide you in understanding what the Scripture teaches about baptism. Below, you can read more about baptism, plan to attend a baptism class, schedule your baptism, or fill out the contact form below and we will be happy to answer any questions.

Frequently Asked Questions


Once a person admits his sin and turns to Christ Jesus for salvation, the next step is to proclaim to heaven and earth the decision to follow Jesus. Baptism is that step. Baptism is the initial and immediate step of obedience by one who has declared his/her faith to others. So important was this step that, as far as we know, every single convert in the New Testament was baptized. With the exception of the thief on the cross, there is no example of an unbaptized believer.
Jesus was baptized (Matthew 3:16-17 NIV). Since then, followers of Jesus have followed his example. Baptism was commanded by Jesus and is a way to go public with your faith to show others that you have decided to follow Jesus and start a personal relationship with him. "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit." (Matthew 28:19 NIV)

The Apostle Paul’s high regard for baptism is demonstrated in the fact that he knows all of his readers have been instructed in its importance (Romans 6:17). Indeed, baptism is a vow, a sacred vow of the believer to follow Jesus. Just as a wedding celebrates the fusion of two hearts, baptism celebrates the union of sinner with Savior. We “became part of Christ when we were baptized.” (Romans 6:3) Don’t prevent baptism from being what God intended. This is no optional command. This is no trivial issue. It is a willing next step into the power and promise of Jesus. Baptism is the first step of a believer. If it was important enough for Jesus to command, isn’t it important enough for you to obey? And if it was important enough for Jesus to do, isn’t it important enough for you to follow?
