Baptism Celebration

Our upcoming annual Outdoor Service will be on Sunday, September 2nd at 10:00 a.m. 

at Otumba Park (32 N. Joliet Avenue, Sturgeon Bay).  

This is an opportunity for the whole church to worship together

and enjoy a shared meal and fellowship after the service.

Baptism is an important part of this celebration.


Baptism is an outward symbolic act that demonstrates the inward reality of what God has done in bringing us to faith in Jesus.  Just as Jesus died, was buried and rose again, so we too die to our flesh through faith in Jesus' sacrifice for us on the cross and are given new life in Him.


Baptism is a Christian's public declaration of their commitment to Jesus.  Through baptism, Christians celebrate Jesus' transforming work in their lives and show their personal union with Jesus in his death, burial and resurrection.


"Peter replied, 'Repent and be baptized, each of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the Holy Spirit.'"   (Acts 2:38, CSB)


"Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you.  And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age."   (Matthew 28:19-20)

Believer's Baptism

Jesus and the Apostles preached that we should repent of our sin, believe in Jesus for salvation and be baptized to demonstrate it. Baptism simply stated, is an outward symbolic act that demonstrates the inward reality of what God has done in bringing us to faith in Jesus. Just as Jesus died, was buried and rose again, so we too, die to our flesh through faith in Jesus’ sacrifice for us on the cross and are given new life in him. 


Sturgeon Bay Community Church practices Believer’s Baptism. Believer’s Baptism is the act of obedience on the part of a professing, born-again believer in Jesus Christ. The method of Baptism we prefer is immersion (going completely under water) in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. A continuation of the Baptism method of John the Baptist, immersion was the way Jesus Himself demonstrated that His ministry had begun.
