BEST. DAY. EVER.

AT HOME BAPTISMS

BEST. DAY. EVER. STEPS

BEFORE:

  1. If you would like to receive a Baptism Kit from the church, please contact Allison Conroy at aconroy@greenfordchristian.org and let her know you would like to be baptized.

  2. Be sure to include your phone number so she can reach out and get important information, including your T-shirt size for your Best Day Every shirt.

  3. Identify a baptized believer who can baptize you. If you don’t have someone like that with you in your household, let Allison know that when you speak. 

  4. Watch the video below for instructions.

 

DURING:

  1. Blow up your inflatable pool. It might take a little while, but hey, you’ve got time

  2. Fill up your inflatable pool with water. You may not have a pool, so a hot tub or bathtub can work. Anything that allows you to be completely submerged.

  3. Get yourself ready - put on some shorts and your Best. Day. Ever. shirt. 

  4. Get your phone out and have someone record this next part. Make sure to hold the phone horizontally.

    1. First, get yourself in the pool. Make sure you’ve got plenty of room to lay back and be submerged. 

    2. Have the person baptizing you kneel beside the pool.

    3. Next the confession - Jesus said if we acknowledge Him in front of others, He will acknowledge us in front of His Heavenly Father (Matthew 10:32-33). Say or repeat - “I believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God, and He is my Savior.” 

    4. Have the person baptizing you say, “I now baptize you in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit."

    5. Plug your nose, and have the person baptizing you lean you back, submerge you into the water, and then bring you back up!

    6. Celebrate like crazy! You’ve been buried with Christ, and now you’re raised to life in Him and given the promised Holy Spirit!  Woohoo!

    7. Look at the camera and say “My name is FIRST NAME and this is my best day ever!"

  5. Take a photo. For this, hold the camera vertically, and get a great shot of the newly baptized person from the chest up. We know they’re sopping wet - that’s okay!

  6. Once you’ve recorded the video, which will probably be about 45 seconds to a minute in length, and you have taken a photo, you can email those to aconroy@greenfordchristian.org or upload them into the Google Drive folder Allison invited you to join.

 

AFTER:

  1. Send your video and photo to aconroy@greenfordchristian.org or upload the video and photo to the Google folder she invited you to when you first spoke.

  2. Fill Out the Baptism FORM HERE and email it back to Allison Conroy.

  3. Celebrate with us on social media!
