By the act of baptism, a person becomes a part of the visible church, for it is a sign and a seal of the covenant of grace for believers and their children. As a sign, it proclaims God’s forgiveness and our redemption in Jesus Christ. As a seal, God marks us as adopted children of our heavenly Father. It indicates our engrafting into Christ, our rebirth, the remission of sins, and our ability by the power of the Spirit to walk in newness of life.
If you are interested in being baptized or having your child baptized, you must first attend an informational meeting. A baptism informational meeting is held at each Goodwill location on the third Sunday of each month.
Montgomery: 1:00 - 1:30 PM

We welcome you to come with your questions and take time to chat with one of our Pastors about baptisms at Goodwill Church. While not mandatory, we ask that, if possible, you please register to attend this class so we know how many people to expect.
On behalf of Goodwill Church, we want to congratulate you as you take this exciting step toward your marriage! While marriage is not a sacrament of the Church, it is ordained by God and intended to last as long as the couple shall live. We are honored to assist you in this journey.
