Through the sacrament of Baptism we are initiated into Christ’s holy Church. We are incorporated into God’s mighty acts of salvation and given new birth through water and the Spirit. All this is God’s gift, offered to us without price. We welcome Babies, children, youth and adults to be baptized during worship.
Baptism Information Request
In baptism we acknowledge that we are beloved children of God. Baptism is our opportunity to pledge our faith and love for God and acknowledge that through God’s Holy Spirit we are transformed for new life.
We believe that baptism is right at any age, from infant to adult. Adults and youth, who have not yet been baptized, are welcome to profess their faith in Jesus Christ and be baptized. Children and others who cannot yet make decisions for themselves are presented for baptism by parents or guardians. By their profession of faith, they vow to nurture their loved ones in the Christian faith and bring them to the point where they can take the Baptism vows themselves.
Baptisms are performed with the community of faith present so that the church might also vow to support the baptized. Baptism is performed by an ordained elder of the church and can be done by sprinkling (water on the top of the head), pouring or immersion.
If you are interested in baptism for your child or yourself, we celebrate this decision and God’s grace working in your life. Please complete this form or contact the church for more information.
