Children’s Sermon on Jesus’ Baptism

Children’s Sermon on Jesus’ Baptism

Use this children’s sermon on John the Baptist baptizing Jesus to teach children what Baptism means. 

Scripture: Matthew 3 or Luke 3

Needed: something that represents Baptism in your church (a censer, visiting the baptismal, a baptismal robe, a picture of someone being baptized, a certificate of baptism, etc.)

Children’s Sermon: How many of you have been baptized?

Why do you think people are baptized? What does it mean?

Baptism has a lot of different meanings. It’s a very special event in the life of a Christian. One of the first things we think of with baptism is washing away someone’s sins. Just like someone takes a bath to wash their body, being baptized shows God is washing your soul of the sins you’ve committed.

But one day, Jesus came to be baptized by John the Baptist. And Jesus didn’t have any sins to be cleansed from. Jesus never did anything wrong! So why do you think Jesus needed to be baptized?

Another aspect of baptism is it shows we’re starting a new life in God and are ready to serve Him. When the water covers us, it’s like we’re dying to our old life, and when we come back up, we’re being raised to new life in God! Jesus’ baptism was to show He was ready to start His life of service to God.

If you haven’t been baptized, think about if you’d like to be baptized to show God has washed away your sins. And if you have been baptized, remember, you’re supposed to be living a new life in service to God.

Closing Prayer: Father God, we thank You for washing us clean of our sins. We pray that You will help us to live a new life in You. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
