How do I get baptized?
At our San Marcos Campus, we offer baptism to anyone following each of our Sunday morning services. Simply come to the front at the end of service and one of our leaders will guide you in the process. We supply clothing, towels, hygiene products, etc. Minors need parental consent and be able to make decision on their own. You do not have to be a member to be baptized.
If you attend the Lockhart Campus, we offer baptism several times a quarter. Ask someone at the Hub for our next date!

We dedicate our members' children during the Sunday morning worship service. We dedicate children of families who are not members after the service. Contact our office and speak to Jennifer Longoria to schedule these sessions. 512-392-4357 or email: email@example.com.

Why does the church take up an offering every week? Where does the money go?
The church operates based on the generosity of those who attend and are a part of the family. Without the financial support of the congregation, the church would not exist as it does. We break down our financial plan in 5 ways:
Worship (22% of budget) - Sunday and Wednesday Worship services, Guest speakers
Fellowship (18% of budget) - Social gatherings, meeting, outdoor events
Discipleship (22% of budget) - Books, Manuals, Trainings, Guest speakers,
Mission (20% of budget) - Local Missions and International Partners around the world
Ministry (16% of budget) - office supplies, overhead, misc
Can I get ordained as a minister at PromiseLand?
We often honor ordinations from other denominations or organizations if they are in line with our Statement of Beliefs. If someone is not ordained, but feel the call to full time ministry, we recommend two options for new ordination: Destiny Ministries or Global Network of Christian Ministries. These are reputable organizations that will lead you through the process. PromiseLand pastors are able to sponsor candidates through the process if they follow the plan.
