water baptism

Water Baptism is an outward expression of a saving relationship with Jesus and participation in a local church community. We host water baptisms during our beach services at various times throughout the year. If you are a follower of Jesus, part of the River Church family, and are ready for baptism, complete the baptism request form.


Partnering with God and The River Church family to lead and nurture your child to love God and others. 

The Parent/Child Dedication ceremony recognizes both the care of God and the importance of the commitment of parents and the church family to provide healthy spiritual nurture for all children. We ask that parents who desire to dedicate themselves and their children to God:
  • Have and pursue a growing relationship with Jesus.
  • Are regular participants in The River weekend worship gatherings.
  • Open themselves to relationships in community through the church.
If you are interested in dedicating yourself and your child, please fill out the Parent/Child Dedication form.
