Jun 17, 2020


Welcome to the Beach Baptism in Ventura, CA hosted by Coast Church Ventura in partnership with Catholic Engaged Encounter, where faith and nature converge for a truly memorable spiritual experience.

Experience the Power of Baptism

Baptism is a significant sacrament in the Catholic faith, symbolizing cleansing, rebirth, and entry into the Christian community. At Coast Church Ventura, we believe that conducting baptisms amidst the scenic beauty of Ventura's beaches adds an extra touch of magnificence to the occasion.

Our Vision

At Coast Church Ventura, our vision is to create a space where individuals can connect deeply with their faith while immersing themselves in the beauty of nature. Through our beach baptisms, we aim to provide a unique experience that combines the spiritual significance of the sacrament with the awe-inspiring backdrop of Ventura, CA.

The Beach Baptism Experience

Our beach baptism events are planned with meticulous attention to detail to ensure an unforgettable experience for our participants. From the moment you arrive at the beach, you will be greeted by our warm and welcoming volunteers who will guide you through the entire process.

As you stand at the water's edge, surrounded by the vast expanse of the ocean, you will feel an overwhelming sense of serenity and spirituality. Our experienced clergy members will lead the baptism ceremony, speaking heartfelt words and performing the ritual with reverence and care.

The sacrament of baptism involves the pouring or immersion of water on the individual's head, symbolizing purification and entry into the Christian faith. It is a moment of renewal, where one's sins are washed away, and a lifelong commitment to living a faithful life is made.

Community and Belonging

Coast Church Ventura, in association with Catholic Engaged Encounter, strives to create a strong sense of community and belonging. Our beach baptism events bring together individuals from all walks of life, united in their shared faith and belief in the power of the sacraments.

Following the baptism ceremony, we encourage participants to connect with one another, forging new friendships and strengthening the bonds of their spiritual community. Sharing stories, prayers, and celebrations enhance the overall experience, creating lasting memories and a sense of lifelong camaraderie.
