In the New Testament, whenever someone became a Follower of Jesus, they were baptized. Baptism is an outward sign of what God has been doing on the inside of a person's heart. At Bethel welcome both the children of believers and new adult believers to be baptized.
Profession of faith is about making a public declaration and commitment to follow after Jesus. At Bethel if someone has previously been baptized as a child, in the teenage years or adulthood, they are encouraged to affirm the promises their baptism by making a public profession of faith in front of the body.
