WATER BAPTISM SERVICE
Water baptism is a way for believers to outwardly express what God has done in their heart and lives in the presence of other believers. When you are baptized in water, you are identifying yourself with Jesus. We have a special baptism service once a month at our Cordova and Collierville locations. Family and friends are encouraged to attend and celebrate this significant decision.
