As reflected in Article III of our bylaws, we believe Baptism is a symbolic act representing Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection. A new Christian follows Christ’s example in symbolizing his own death to sin, burial, and resurrection to a new life as a believer by being baptized. Through the ordinance of Baptism, an individual demonstrates that he/she has turned from sin to Christ. Therefore, Olive Branch shall receive for Baptism any person who has accepted Jesus Christ as Savior by personal faith, who professes Jesus Christ publicly, and who indicates a commitment to follow Christ as Lord, whether or not that individual chooses to become an Active Member of Olive Branch. Baptism shall be by immersion in water. Other modes of Baptism are acceptable for persons who unite with the Church having already experienced that respective mode of Baptism.
We are so excited that you have chosen to be baptized. We believe that it is one of the best decisions that you will make in your life!
Olive Branch Church performs Baptism on a selected Saturday of each quarter of the year at 2:00 PM. The location of this service, Murfreesboro or Nashville Campus, will be determined by our Senior Pastor and then communicated to you prior.
If there is a need to change the scheduling and/or the location of this ordinance, an official OBC affiliate will notify you.
If you have further questions, please call 615-941-1268 or email us.
