Now in Him we live

Baptism is one of the ways we tell the world about Jesus. As we put our faith in Him, we move from death to life – death to our old self (going under the water) and birth to our new self in Christ (rising above the water). It’s a cause to celebrate, and it’s a declaration of His love. It’s a step of obedience as a believer, learning from the example of Jesus.

At DUMC, we celebrate baptism during our Sunday Celebrations. As a family of God, we want to stand together with those who are being baptised — as witnesses to this great event. It’s also a time when those who wants to call DUMC as their home church declare their commitment. That’s why we have baptism and membership together. It’s a double cause for celebration!


Anyone who wants to be baptised or become a member of DUMC must attend three classes:

  • Basic Christianity 101
  • DUMC 101
  • Baptism and Membership Encounter Weekend (BMEW)

BMEW is a weekend away trip to uncover the past and discover the future. This class will help you, among a few other things, to be sure of your salvation and to break away from past bondages. These classes will also guide you through the next steps to the public date of your baptism. For more information about these classes, click here.
