Okay, They are asking questions. Now what?
First, talk about salvation. Baptism is going public with our decision to follow Jesus. If they haven't chosen Jesus as their leader, it’s not time for baptism yet. If you’d like some pointers on talking to your kids about salvation using kid-friendly language, check out Next Step For Kids.
Pray with them
Let them lead part of your prayer time. Encourage them to talk to God about baptism and to share with Him any questions or ideas they might have. Pray God will reveal Himself so they can truly understand what salvation and baptism are all about. Trust God to reveal to you whether or not they are ready to be baptized.
Experience baptism, together
Watch a baptism video like the one below. Bring them to our baptism service on September 9th to witness first-hand, what baptisms are all about. Afterward, let them share their perspective on what’s going on, ask them what questions they have, and share what you know about baptism. If you don’t know what baptism is about, or you don’t know the answers to their questions, you’re not alone! The answers on our Baptism FAQ page won’t just help your kid, they’ll help you out, too!
