Here at the Ridge we reserve baptism for those 10 years of age and up. It is our collective experience in ministry that the older kids are at baptism, the more meaningful it is to them in their important teenage years and beyond. We long for this to be a significant step in the discipleship process so that children will walk with Jesus for a lifetime.
If your child does not meet the age requirments for baptism at the Ridge and you'd like to talk with us, please do! We'd love to support you more and provide the resources for you to continue the conversation with your kids. You can email our Ridge Kids director Sharla Tilley.
"FOR YOU WERE BURIED WITH CHRIST WHEN YOU WERE BAPTIZED. AND WITH HIM YOU WERE RAISED TO NEW LIFE BECAUSE YOU TRUSTED THE MIGHTY POWER OF GOD, WHO RAISED CHRIST FROM THE DEAD. YOU WERE DEAD BECAUSE OF YOUR SINS AND BECAUSE YOUR SINFUL NATURE WAS NOT YET CUT AWAY. THEN GOD MADE YOU ALIVE WITH CHRIST, FOR HE FORGAVE ALL OUR SINS."
