How to Make a Portable Baptistry for a Small Church
Baptism is a beautiful moment as new Christians celebrate their transformation & new life in Christ… but what happens if you’re a small church without a built-in baptistry?
Sure, you could use a creek. But what if you live in Oklahoma City and you don’t have a creek?
You could go out of town and do a lake — but then you sacrifice some of the chance that your new Christians will invite their family and friends, and get them to witness their testimonies.
So, maybe you purchase a portable baptistry. But… those things are expensive!
A few years ago, I decided to make one of our own. Watch the video to see how we did it.
And here’s a video of our baptistry in use in a recent baptism service:
A Word from Our Sponsor:
This video series is brought to you by SermonSubscribe, providing quality preaching by video.
Are you burned out as a pastor? Need someone to help lift the preaching load for a time? Do you need a sabbatical, but not sure how you will fill the pulpit?
Are you on a pastoral search committee, but you’re struggling to find a good candidate, and make sure someone is able to preach every weekend? Did your pastor retire, and you’re looking for a new one… but you have to bridge the gap until you can hire a new pastor?
You need to check out SermonSubscribe (www.sermonsubscribe.com). Each week, I preach live in Oklahoma City, edit the High-definition video, and send it to churches across the United States. By the middle of the week, those churches have a quality Biblical sermon to download, handouts to print out & copy… and all of this for far less than it costs to bring in a special speaker or interim pastor.
