At Eastview, we believe that baptism is an outward expression of an inward reality of Christ's work in our lives. With baptism by immersion, we believe it is a beautiful picture of the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We simply seek to follow this expresssion of faith, as we understand it, in the New Testament. For more information and teaching about baptism, please attend Starting Point or watch for one of our quarterly baptism classes we offer.

Baptism Sundays

Numerous times throughout the year we have Baptism Sundays. On these Sundays anyone who wishes to express their commitment to follow Christ through belief, confession and repentance can be baptized. Please email involvement@eastview.church to schedule your baptism and be a part of one of these special days!
