Interested in Baptism? PDF Print E-mail

"Have you been baptized?"

It's a question that gets asked from time to time when you are involved in a church community like Parksville Baptist Church, but sometimes we hear the question and don't seriously consider our answer --- we just say "No."

This year, we'd like to invite you to consider the question just a little bit more before coming up with an answer.

Baptism is an experience that Jesus actually commands those who have already committed their lives to following him to do.  It is something that demonstrates two things:


1.) It demonstrates what Jesus has already done for us. In going under the water and then coming out, we are joining in the death and burial of Jesus, and then his resurrection which defeated sin and death. Read some of Romans 6 for more details HERE.

2.) It announces to the world that we are followers of Jesus and want to live in obedience to him. In fact, in Acts 8, you'll find the story of a man who embraces Jesus as his God and Savior and then immediately hits the river to get baptized - read about that story HERE.


To learn more about what the Bible teaches us about Baptism, you might want to listen to Pastor Paul's sermon on the topic HERE


So, "Have you been baptized?" ... if you are interested in being baptized, just follow these three easy steps:


1. Contact the church office (HERE) or talk with one of the pastors this weekend.

2. Download and read this short, informative booklet (HERE) we've put together.

3. Invite your family and friends to celebrate your baptism with you in the months ahead!


Growth Groups 101 PDF Print E-mail



Growth Groups are about life, about Christian living. We want to make fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ: disciples who live out their faith seven days a week.


Here are some questions that you might be asking …


What is a Growth Group?

A Growth Group is a home fellowship that meets weekly to share, study and support one another. An average meeting lasts for an hour and a half, followed by light refreshments.


How Important Are Growth Groups?

Our goal at Parksville Fellowship Baptist Church, is to see Growth Groups become a cornerstone ministry. They're the place where the real ministry of the church takes place as we study God's Word, while supporting and sharing our lives with one another. We believe that meeting together on a regular basis is time well spent.


When and Where Do They Meet?

Growth Groups meet on various nights of the week in homes throughout Oceanside. Most groups meet from 7-9 pm.


How Long Do They Last?

Each Growth Group semester lasts 9 to 11 weeks. We have Fall, Winter & Spring sessions. At the end of each semester, you will have the choice of staying in the same group, trying a new group or even taking a break. Most groups stay together throughout the entire year. Growth Groups do not meet mid-June through August.


What is the Required Commitment?

When joining a Growth Group we ask that you make a 9 to 11 week commitment to attend weekly meetings and do the preparation ahead of time. Obviously, allowances are made for sickness, vacation, work conflicts and other special events. This commitment is the key to a strong Growth Group. You have the first three weeks to attend the group to make sure it's a good fit for you.
