If you are ready to be baptized, please sign up now. The one requirement for baptism is belief in Christ. Also, we do not baptize children until they are old enough to understand and believe.
There will be no Growth Track or Wednesday evening classes on this night, so we can all join in the celebration.
For more information, view our baptism information page.

Desperation was birthed for one purpose: to help sculpt a generation that desires to live a life in desperate pursuit of God. Each year, thousands of students from across the world gather together for a weekend devoted to worship, prayer and going deep with God.
Desperation calls young people to live in desperate pursuit of God. You can expect prolonged worship and prayer times, dynamic national speakers, and an overall intense encounter with God. It is an experience that words cannot describe. For some, it is a call to return home to the Father; but for most, it is a life-altering experience that forever changes their perspective on life and God.
