About Baptism

Baptism is an important step of obedience that shows others we have personally trusted Jesus for our salvation. Jesus was baptized when He was on the earth and we do this to follow His example. When Christians are baptized, they are submerged under water to identify with the death and burial of Jesus and raised out of the water to identify with His resurrection. We believe that water baptism is a public declaration of three important things: you are a follower of Jesus Christ, you are beginning a changed life in Christ and you are part of a new family.

Baptisms at Fox River occur regularly throughout the year during weekend services. Currently baptism is available at the Waukesha and Muskego Campuses. Once a year we hold an outdoor Baptism Celebration, which gives us the opportunity to come together as a church family and rejoice in this important next step.

“Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you…” // Matthew 28:19-20
