Our New Baptism T-Shirt

This summer we're going to be doing a big baptism event so we wanted to create a special t-shirt in which people can get baptized and keep to commemorate the event.

Because our pastors often use a phrase based on Romans 6:4 when they baptize someone, we wanted to echo that in the shirt.

We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life.
— Romans 6:4 (ESV)

We also wanted to illustrate those two ideas in the shirt as well. The solution we landed on was to use a blue color for the first phrase on the front (under the water) and use white for the phrase on the back.

Use this design for your church's baptism shirts.

First Baptist Colleyville in Texas used this shirt design for one of their baptism services. Check it out:


Does your church do big baptism events or have a special baptism shirt? Let me know. I'd love to see your church's shirt and learn about what you guys do.
