Join us on Saturday, July 27th as we celebrate members of Meta Church going public with their faith in Jesus by taking the step of Baptism!

Our Beach¬†Baptism Celebration¬†will take place at Rockaway Beach in Queens from 1-5pm. We’ll hangout together, have a time of worship, an encouraging word from our pastors, and we’ll cap off the day with baptisms in the ocean!

Our Beach Baptism is one of the best days of the year and we’d love to have as many people from Meta Church joining us to celebrate! We’ll have a group of people ride the NYC Ferry together, departing from Pier 11 at South Street/Seaport. More details to come, but you can learn more about NYC Ferry transportation here.

BAPTISM FAQs

Q: What is baptism?

  • Baptism is a public declaration of one’s personal faith and trust in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior (see Rom. 6:3-4 and Gal. 3:27).

Q: Is baptism important?

  • Yes! Jesus, Himself, was baptized (see Matt. 3:13-17) and He instructed His disciples to baptize other believers upon their profession of faith (see Matt. 28:19-20).

Q: Is baptism required for salvation? Or does baptism forgive my sins?

  • No and no. Baptism is not required for salvation, nor does it forgive a person’s sins. The Scriptures clearly teach that only faith in Jesus Christ as Lord provides salvation and forgiveness of sins (see John 3:16; Rom. 5:8; and 2 Cor. 5:21). Baptism is simply a symbol and public proclamation of one’s belief in Jesus Christ.

Q: Who should be baptized?

  • We believe the Scriptures teach that anyone who has already placed their faith in Jesus Christ as their Lord should be baptized (see Acts 2:41, 8:36-38, and 19:5).

Q: How do you baptize people?

  • We baptize by immersion. This means a person is submerged under the water and then raised out of the water. We practice baptism in this way for two reasons: First, this is how Jesus was baptized in Matthew 3. Secondly, we believe baptism by immersion best depicts Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection.
