Jesus was baptized in the Jordan River by John the Baptist
~Matthew 3:13; Mark 1:9; Luke 3:23.

Although He knew no sin, Jesus demonstrated to us that baptism is an outward expression of the spiritual change that takes place when a person receives the free gift of salvation. The Bible tells us we don’t get baptized to get saved; rather we are baptized because of our relationship with the One who died so we can have eternal life. It is therefore extremely important that baptism occur after a person has made a conscious decision to repent of their sins and profess their faith in Jesus Christ.

Our Baptism service is normally held the Tuesday before the 4th Sunday in the main Sanctuary. Baptisms are held at 7:30pm. Candidates should arrive at least 1 hour prior to their scheduled time. For more information, contact 202-265-9040 or email our Love First Coordinator at
