Baptisms

We believe that Baptism is a visible sign of the love we receive from a seemingly invisible God. It is the sign and seal of one’s entering into the faith community that we call body of Jesus Christ, namely the Church. The Book of Order of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) tells us that Jesus, through his own Baptism, identified himself with the community of God’s children in order to fulfill the will of God. In Baptism, the one baptized ceremonially participates in the death and resurrection of Jesus in that he or she dies to what separates him or her from God (namely, sin) and is raised to newness of life in Jesus Christ.

 

If you are considering baptism for yourself or your child we encourage you to speak to our pastor!
