This ministry team is the hand of Christ extended as it reaches out to the congregation by making hospital visits to church family members, visiting the bereaved and shut-ins, and connecting with people at different points along life’s path. Individuals and teams of trained, compassionate caregivers are available to share their gifts in giving care to those who face a personal and transitional crisis.
Congregational Care Ministries consist of Baptism, Counseling, Tele-Care, Visitation, and We Care.
The ordinance of baptism by immersion is commanded in the Holy Scriptures. All who repent and believe on Christ as Savior and Lord are to be baptized. The Baptism Ministry brings the New Believer to a place of understanding of Water Baptism and assists them through the act of Baptism.
If you have not been baptized by immersion, (complete submersion in water) since you accepted Jesus as your Savior, in accordance with the Word of God, you may need to be baptized. The Baptismal Committee will contact candidates with the exact date of the baptism.
Please fill out and submit a Baptismal Application.

Tele-care is a ministry which conveys to new converts, visitors, the sick and the shut in, the elderly, and the general membership the love of Christ through telephone calls.
One of the main functions of Tele-care is to notify and encourage new believers. Each week Tele-Care volunteers inform new believers about the various classes that are offered at Resurrected Life, that can help them in their walk with the Lord. Tele-care workers pray for new converts and visitors and for blessings and any special needs that arise.
