Baptism is an important step for every believer. If you have not been baptized, we invite you to read the information below or contact Alex at for more information. 

1. What is baptism?

Baptism is an outward sign of what God has done in your heart. Baptism does not make you a believer – it shows that you already believe. Baptism does not “save” you, only your faith in Christ does that. 

2. Why should I be baptized? 

  • Jesus himself was baptized. (Matthew 3: 13-17)
  • Jesus baptized others. (John 3: 22)
  • Jesus told us to baptize all nations. (Matthew 28:19)

3. Who should be baptized and when?

  • Every person who has committed to a relationship with Christ. (Acts 2: 28) 
  • As soon as you have begun your relationship with Christ. (Acts 2:41)


A Membership Class is typically held on the first Sunday of the month during the school year at 10:30a at the Ottawa Campus and every other month during the school year at 10:30a at the Peru Campus. However, there will be no class during the month of April.

This is a relaxed time when some of our staff pastors share the vision and mission of Crossbridge Community Church. At the end of the informational class, all attendees will have the opportunity to become members if they choose to. 

For more information on membership, e-mail or call the admin. building at 815-434-3794.
