We regularly provide the opportunity for individuals to express and celebrate their commitment to Jesus through baptism. These baptism celebrations usually take place on Sundays right after services. In the summer, we have two outdoor events that provide the opportunity to be baptized in Narragansett Bay.
Through baptism, we identify with the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus. Going under the water illustrates the death of our “old self” and coming up out of the water portrays the reality of our new life in Jesus.
FOLLOWING JESUS & BAPTISM CONVERSATIONS:
If you haven't been baptized, and you feel ready, email Josh@BridgePointeChristian.com and we'll help you take this next step in following Jesus.
Sometimes we have questions. Why is Jesus good news for me? How do I receive forgiveness for sin and begin a renewed relationship with God? What is baptism all about? BridgePointe staff and ministry leaders are available to speak with you to help you understand the hope Jesus offers and how to respond.

As a child I was baptized and raised Catholic. As a teen I met Pastor Mike. He ran the Shepherds club and I still have my membership card. I had no idea he gave us the experience of Christian fellowship. I just thought it was a good experience for me, meeting new people and experiencing different beliefs. Over the years I simply stopped going to church. I always believed in a higher power, I just always felt like I never fit in anywhere.
BAPTISM STORY: GW MERCURE
"Sometime the year before last, feeling hopeless, lost, and divorced from the self that I knew and could love, I randomly asked my dear friend Kerstyn Desjardin if she believed in God, if she attended a church. I had no reason to suspect that she would answer that she did. I don’t know, even, why I asked, especially why I asked her. But she said that she did and answered my questions about it. I approached her about attending services at BridgePointe..."
