FOLLOWING CHRIST: Now that you have said “Yes” to Jesus by putting your faith in Him for salvation, the next step in following Christ is believer’s baptism. If you are interested in being baptized, we invite you to watch this short video from Pastor Doug. This video will help you better understand the biblical importance of baptism and hopefully answer any questions you may have.
We don't believe that baptism gives you salvation. Rather, it is a symbol and representation of the commitment you've already made to follow Christ. Christ instructs us to be baptized as a public profession of faith letting everyone know that you have said “Yes” to Him.
If you're ready to say YES to Baptism, sign up here.
KID’S BAPTISM: At Orchard Church, we wait until our children are old enough to know and understand the decision to say “Yes” to Jesus, as well as, the true meaning of baptism before we baptize them. Children must also have parent’s permission to be baptized.
Here is a brief BAPTISM VIDEO for you to watch with your child to help them understand this important step.

Whether you've known Christ for many years or just a few minutes, Discipleship can be an amazing spiritual growth process for everyone at Orchard Church. This one-on-one discipleship process helps each believer learn how to follow Jesus Christ in every area of life and REPRODUCE themselves in other believers.
We pair our "disciples" or learners with someone of the same gender, similar demographics, interests and schedules. They meet each week to build a friendship, while learning God's Word.
Discipleship is designed to help believers grow in their relationship with Christ. The lessons help you understand your relationship to God, how to communicate with Him, how to apply basic Bible principles to your life and how your life can be an influential witness and testimony of God’s grace.
Watch this brief video for a behind the scenes look at Discipleship!
