Here at BRAVE Church we believe that young children can indeed be saved by Jesus at an early age, understand the gospel, and we pray for this often. Because we also know from scripture that baptism is not essential for salvation, at BRAVE we encourage children to wait until middle school before applying for baptism.

Baptism declares to the world you’ve trusted Jesus, joined God’s family in the church, and made a commitment to follow Jesus, with all your heart, mind and soul.


We believe that Christian baptism by immersion in water is a public identification with Jesus Christ in His death, burial and resurrection. Although baptism is not required for salvation, it is commanded of all believers and is for believers only (Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 2:38, 41; Acts 18:18).


If you have never been baptized after salvation, baptism is your first step! We encourage you to take the next step and share your story with us. Sharing your personal story is a simple and powerful way to tell people about Jesus. We want to celebrate what God has with you! Tell us how Jesus has changed your life.
