You don’t have to be a member of West End to be baptized, and you don’t have to be baptized to be a member at West End.

What does West End believe about baptism?
The Bible clearly teaches that baptism is the first step of obedience after making a commitment to Christ. Baptism allows a believer to communicate to the world their heartfelt commitment to Christ. People often have questions regarding baptism: Why should I be baptized? I’ve already been baptized. Do I have to do it again? Does it matter if someone is sprinkled or dunked? Baptism is a symbolic event that allows a Christian to express publicly that he is a follower of Jesus. Baptism symbolizes what happens to us when we become Christians. Entering the pool represents leaving your old life behind. When we become Christians, we give control of our lives to God. In doing so, we agree to follow His lead and do what He asks us to do. Getting baptized was not only something Jesus did, but something that He asks all believers to do.
