We celebrate when kids come to an understanding of who Jesus Christ is and decide to make Him their Lord and Savior! So our Children’s Pre-Baptism class is designed to help children understand the important aspects of being a Christian and serves as our preparation course for baptism.

This course will take a child through the basic Christian beliefs that NDCBF feels are important for children to know before they get baptized.

This 6-week course meets at 10:30AM and addresses the following material:

 

Class 1 - What does it mean to be a Christian.

Key Points:
  • By faith alone, through Christ alone…not by works (Eph. 2:8)
  • Scripture supports that believe only (not belief AND baptism) is what makes a person a Christian
  • Baptism is an act of obedience. This is based on Romans 10:9 – 11 and Luke 23:39 – 43

Class 2 - The Church

Key Points:
  • The church is a group of people with the same beliefs (not a building).
  • Based on Matt 16:13-18 and Acts 2:4
  • The foundation of the church is the belief that Christ is the Son of God, a fact revealed to Peter by God.

Class 3 and 4 - Baptism and the Lord’s Supper (Communion)

Key Points:
  • Acts 8:26-38 - The salvation and baptism of the Ethiopian Eunuch
  • Matthew 26:26-30 – The Lord’s Supper and 1 Cor. 11:23-26 - Paul’s recap of the Lord’s Supper with the early church
  • Practical concerns regarding Baptism (i.e., Baptism water temperature, process, Communion process, etc.)

In addition to the class time, the students are expected to complete a booklet at home called I’m a Christian Now. We ask parents to only pay $5.00 for either one of these $6.95 booklets.
