In preparation for baptism, parents must fulfill two requirements: at least one parent should be a member of Fourth Church and both parents should attend an hour and a half seminar on baptism.

If you would like information about membership, please contact Hardy Kim, Associate Pastor for Evangelism, at 312.981.3399 or visit the membership page.

The baptism seminar sessions are held once a month typically on the first Sunday of the month from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. at the church.

The dates on which baptismal seminars will be held are listed here. Childcare is provided. Please contact Briana Belding-Peck (312.274.3804) once you have selected the session you will attend.

Baptism dates are also scheduled through Briana Belding-Peck (312.274.3804). Baptisms are usually held during the 9:30 and 11:00 a.m. worship services on the second Sunday morning of each month, but there are some exceptions.
