Baptisms

Baptisms are normally celebrated during Worship on a Sunday morning. This important Sacrament is our entrance into the Christian Church and so the whole community gathers around those who either desire to be baptized or to have their children baptized. Parents and sponsors promise to raise the child in the faith and the whole congregation helps them do this by providing for Worship and Christian Education.  

A period of counseling and preparation is required before any Baptism in order to ensure that the parents and sponsors understand the responsibilities and the promises of the Sacrament. Please call the Senior Pastor to arrange for any Baptism and be sure to plan enough time to meet with him or her before the event. 

The Church baptizes only in the Trinitarian Name as Jesus instructed, “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you.  And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:19-20)

A baptismal form (attached) must be completed and returned to the office prior to the baptism for our records
