BaptismFrom the Preamble to The Design of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), rev. 2005

“Through baptism into Christ, we enter into newness of life and are made one with the whole people of God.”

At First Christian Church- Corpus Christi, we baptize by immersion anyone who has made a personal, informed decision to become a part of the body of Christ. Pastor’s classes are offered for all those thinking about baptism and wishing to learn more about church membership. These classes run for six weeks and, though most people considering baptism try to schedule their classes in preparation for baptism on Easter Sunday, special arrangements can be made for anyone wishing to be baptized any other time during the year.
