A free video course to help prepare people for believer’s baptism.

Be Baptised Live Baptised is a free video and discussion course. From this page you can download the videos and resources for the course leader. Start by watching this 90 second promo video.

Each of the three sessions includes a 10 minute video and leader’s guide full of ideas and activities to help you get the most from the material. You can use the course in a one to one setting, in small groups or adapt it for Sunday services.

We envisage people using the course to help some prepare for believer’s baptism and others to explore what baptism is about.

This 90 second taster video is a celebration of believer’s baptism, combining clips from the course with footage of recent baptisms in Church from Scratch, a Baptist church in the Eastern Baptist Association.

1. Identified
by Phil Durrant

In session 1 Phil Durrant takes us on a spiralling journey up a council tower block – we discover that as we identify with Jesus, our story and Jesus’ story join powerfully together.

Phil helps us to see that in baptism Jesus gives us a way out of the maze and a way into the wide open spaces of God’s Kingdom.

The question is not ‘does baptism make sense?’ but ‘does my life make sense without it?”

2. Washed
by Peter Dominey

In session 2 Peter Dominey takes us to our own funeral. At the graveside he confronts us with baptism, our watery grave. And he invites us to die.

God is poised to give us a new life and for that to happen our old life needs to be washed away.

We need to die to the old life.
No half measures. No shortcuts.
Total immersion in God’s plan.

3. Called
by Juliet Kilpin

In session 3 Juliet Kilpin takes us on a train journey. And helps us to see that believer’s baptism is the start of the journey, not the end.

Juliet talks of how we are called, commissioned and sent through baptism on a life long adventure.

As we join in with God’s mission, we get to play our part in making the world more as he intends.
God calls us to action.
