Portable Baptistries

Jordan Series Portable Baptistry

The newest design in our portable baptistry series, The Jordan shares the same dimensions and base design of our popular Model B baptistry but features upgraded, intricate trim work around the lid, base, and sides as well as a custom espresso with antiqued white stain finish. This contemporary re-visioning of our Model B design will add a modern and distinguished look to any sanctuary or worship area. The Jordan Baptistry comes standard with our heavy duty wheel kit, cabinet and steps with non-slip treading, 120v #10 Immersion Water Heater as well as custom paint/stain finish and trim. A matching antique white decorative cross is included, detached, for flexible mounting options or for use elsewhere. Three wooden steps that feature slip resistant strips are also included to help enter and exit the tub, and when not in use can stored inside the baptistry. The removable top requires two people to remove it. There is an access door in the rear of the portable baptistry that allows you to gain access to the drain is installed on it for draining your water. Simply connect it to any normal style garden hose and turn the valve on. This will prevent you from having to install a permanent solution as this is a portable tub. The ¼” fiberglass tub itself features a step for the individual to step down and sit into place. Each portable baptistry is made here in our factory and are reinforced with 2 x 4 supports for added stability.

Note: Baptistry requires a 35" wide door opening.

Our Portable Baptistry wood cabinets, wood steps and wood accessories are handcrafted at our Rocky Mount, Virginia facility. Standard cabinet options include an unstained oak or unstained birch cabinet surround, a matching wood top cover and matching step unit. The matching 3 step unit features anti-slip tape strips and is designed to sit on the ground at the end of the portable baptistry. A decorative wood cross is also included with the cabinet options which can be mounted to the front or laid on top of the cabinet (wood cross and step unit are both shipped unattached for flexibility of placement and easier portability). All wood components can be stained at an additional cost.

We offer an AquaSeal Protective Coating for churches that wish to leave water in their baptistries for long periods of time. While we recommend draining your baptistry tub after every use, we recognize that this will not always be practical for some churches. AquaSeal ensures a strong, water-proof seal for up to three months before changing. Including an AquaSeal coating is an additional 25% of the baptistry cost.

Our Heavy Duty Wheel Kits are specificially designed for our portable baptistries. The portable baptistry rests inside a steel frame which has four heavy-duty caster wheels beneath. This kit is designed to make portable baptistry mobility safe and simple. Wheels feature convenient and easy to use locking system to keep baptistry in place while in use.

Matching wood portable baptistry steps can be ordered along with the portable baptistry cabinet surround. The heavy-duty steps feature a three step design with slip resistant grip-tape on each step. Additional steps can be added at an additional cost.

Portable Baptistries with our wood cabinets are often used as a communion table also. Because of this, we offer a matching wood plaque with the inscription, "THIS DO IN REMEMBRANCE OF ME." This plaque can be mounted on the front of the portable baptistry cabinet. Note: Communion plaque is shipped unattached. Church is responsible for attachment of plaque.

Baptistry covers offer great protection from children entering the baptistry and they also help keep the tub water warm while using your ChurchRite® circulation heater. Over the decades many churches have asked us about offering a cover for their fiberglass, steel or concrete baptistry and were happy to announce that we now offer them through our baptistry manufacturer, ChurchRite®. The company has designed and developed a cover that is similar to the ones uses in the spa and hot tub industry although these models fit your tubs size specifications. Baptisteries are normally heated before use. These covers sit on the edge or ledge of your fiberglass or steel tub. We can do cutouts for spigots if needed.

Water comes from the ground at 54 degrees F and is too cold to enter. Hypothermia will set in within a few moments if one is not careful. The use of a good heater will enable the water temperature to get to 94 or 95 degrees where it will be quite comfy (remember your body temperature is 98-99 degrees). Since there is usually not a top on the baptistry, however, the heater will tend to run continually causing your electric meter to run on and on. It also will shorten the lifespan of heaters if they run continuously. In addition the moisture produced can be harmful to your instruments or furniture.

We offer baptistry covers made to the same quality and specifications as spa covers. Designed for long term use, these covers can be “locked down” with the straps to help prevent kids from falling in, and will keep excess moisture from entering the sanctuary area, piano, furniture and other wood items that don’t need saturation. Custom made to fit your baptistry.
