Water baptism is the biblical way to show on the outside (with our bodies) what God has done on the inside (with our hearts and spirits). It is a public declaration that a person has turned away from their sin, has put their trust in Jesus Christ and is committed to letting Him be in control and obeying Him for the rest of their lives. You are welcome to attend the next set of four baptism classes.
If you have questions please reach out to pastor Mike (email@example.com) To sign up please fill out the sign up form (mckernanbaptist.ca/baptism) and we look forward to walking with you as you consider baptism.
What is membership and how does it work at McKernan? What are the responsibilities of members? How do we make decisions together and stay healthy? Why is membership important? What do we believe as a church? We’ll discuss all this and more together in the membership class.
If you have questions you would like to discuss before talking the class please reach out to any of the pastors or email pastor Mike at firstname.lastname@example.org/.
Register online at, mckernanbaptist.ca/MembershipClass/.
January 24 - April 10 (12 weeks), Wednesday evenings; 6:30 (supper); 7pm (class)
The Alpha Course (alphacanada.org) is a 12-week course that expresses the basic teachings of Christianity and continues to impact the lives of those searching for life, faith, and meaning with the living Jesus Christ.
Alpha’s flexibility allows for the diversity that is evidenced in the Body of Christ to be embraced and celebrated. Every Wednesday evening, the guests, helpers, and hosts will gather for an experience that truly gives evidence that Jesus is with us.
Yes, the supper together will be spectacular; the teaching, compelling; the atmosphere, warmly inviting; yet beyond all that, the blessing of the Holy Spirit is what will make the difference. He changes lives. Every person is invited to grow in their spiritual life.
