Kids Baptism Class - Dallas
Helping Your Child Take Their Next Step
Kids Baptism Class is a leadership class where children, 1st – 5th grade, explore the basics of Christianity. Through creative, age-appropriate, interactive teaching, kids will:
- Discover what it means to be a Christ Follower
- Understand the importance of a relationship with God
- Realize the opportunity to make that decision
- Establish how to build spiritual muscle
- Recognize the importance of developing their relationship with Christ as a future leader.
Because these basics are so important for kids to understand, Kid Faith is a required class for children before they are baptized at Fellowship Church. At least one parent is required to attend.
We ask that children birth through kindergarten remain in age-appropriate child programming while the class is taking place.

Outward expression, inward decision
Simply put, baptism is an outward display and celebration of your inward decision to trust Christ with your life. It’s an act of obedience, a step of acknowledgement that is representative of the fact that Jesus died on the cross, was buried, and walked out of the grave alive so that each of us can have eternal life. When you step into the water, you are letting the world know that you have walked into a new life of faith in Jesus Christ and that you are committing to follow Him down a new path. If you’ve made the decision to follow Jesus, baptism is the next step in your spiritual journey.
“Baptism” comes from the Greek word baptizo, which means “to immerse.” Like Jesus, we should be baptized by immersion. That means going into the water, being immersed under the water, and coming back out of the water. It’s that simple!
Baptism is commanded in Scripture. Also, it identifies Christ-followers with Jesus.
Going public with our faith by being baptized is the first step of obedience after accepting Jesus as our Savior. It is a public expression of an inward connection. Don’t be ashamed to stand for your Savior!
Absolutely not! Only Christ’s sacrifice on the cross and His resurrection cleanses sin. Baptism is a celebration of our acceptance of that fact.
Believers baptism is reserved for those who are old enough to make their own faith decision to become a Christ-follower, and it always comes after one’s faith decision. Being biblically baptized, like Jesus was, in many ways confirms the dreams of those who had you baptized as an infant!
Yes! If each person understands fully the meaning of baptism, and each one has personally placed his/her trust in Christ for salvation, we encourage families to be baptized at the same time. It is a wonderful expression of commitment. However, it is important to remember that baptism is a personal statement of faith, not a family or group tradition. It is usually not wise to delay your baptism while waiting on others to join you. This puts an undue pressure on them and delays your obedience.
A child may participate in Believer’s Baptism if they are at least 6 years old, have completed Kid Faith and have made a personal decision to receive Christ. We also have an opportunity for parents to dedicate their children at our Parent Child Dedication.
