BAPTISMS

We joyfully celebrate baptism as a sign and seal of being welcomed into the Christian church, as part of the body of Christ. The Presbyterian Church (USA) Book of Order says:

 

The Sacrament of Baptism holds a deep reservoir of theological meaning, including: dying and rising with Jesus Christ; pardon, cleansing, and renewal; the gift of the Holy Spirit; incorporation into the body of Christ; and a sign of the realm of God. The Reformed tradition understands Baptism to be a sign of God’s covenant. The water of Baptism is linked with the waters of creation, the flood, and the exodus. Baptism thus connects us with God’s creative purpose, cleansing power, and redemptive promise from generation to generation. Baptism is a sign of God’s gracious covenant with the Church. In this new covenant of grace God washes us clean and makes us holy and whole. Baptism also represents God’s call to justice and righteousness, rolling down like a mighty stream, and the river of the water of life that flows from God’s throne. (W-3.0402)

 

Baptism happens on Sundays, during worship, and the congregation makes a vow to support those being baptized and their family. Believing that God loves us from birth onward, we baptize infants, as well as children, teens, and adults. We do not re-baptize; if you have been baptized in another Christian church, we recognize that baptism.

 

If you are interested in exploring baptism, please contact one of the pastors or the church office.
