The Sacrament of Baptism marks a person’s acceptance into the care of Christ’s church, and the beginning of their Christian journey of faith. It is a personal celebration in the lives of the individual candidates and their families. It is also a celebration within the congregation as well as a time to affirm its covenant to provide a place where the one baptized and their family will be supported and nurtured in the Christian faith. For this reason, baptism is celebrated in the presence of the community gathered for worship. Arrangements are made with the Pastor. We recognize baptisms from other faith traditions, so there is no need to be re-baptized when you join the church.
