One of the most powerful aspects of baptism at Canyons Church is the video testimony shown right before your baptism. The video allows you to share how you came to know Christ as your Savior and how he has been working in your life.

Prerecording allows you to do as many takes as necessary, while sharing the message you have thoughtfully and prayerfully prepared ahead of time. Many people ask, “Do I have to do the video?” The answer is yes, if you want to be baptized at Canyons Church.

Baptism is meant to be a public profession and it is an incredible opportunity to share God’s message of redemption with hundreds of people. We truly have witnessed the life changing effect these videos have had on people’s lives. It is incredible!

Another important reason we do a video is that we as a congregation grow in our faith by watching these stories. It allows friends, family, and even those you don’t know to celebrate the amazing transformation Christ has worked in your life.

Some people are nervous about taping their stories, but we work hard to make the process both simple and fulfilling. After you’ve been scheduled for your baptism day, we will send you a link  that will walk you through the filming process, give you helpful pointers for your testimony, and provide you with sample testimonies to watch. We will have a meeting where we go over everything you'll need to know about the baptism process and the videotaping. The video will be taped on the day of your meeting, which usually takes place one week before your baptism shoot!

We want baptism to be a meaningful and enjoyable experience, and we look forward to walking through it with you! If you have any questions or need help preparing your testimony, please This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
