Baptism of Adults

Through the Sacrament of Baptism, we are freed from sin and reborn as children of God. We become members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church, and made sharers in the Church’s mission. Through the waters of Baptism, sin is forgiven and the new Christian, having died with Christ, rises to new and everlasting life.

Since the beginning of the Church, adults have been welcomed into the church through baptism after a period of instruction, prayer, and reflection.

Infant Baptism

Infant Baptism is a beautiful, life-changing Sacrament where children are freed from sin, reborn in the Holy Spirit, and welcomed into our community of faith, the family of God.

The Sacrament of Baptism for infants is celebrated in a communal ceremony on selected Sundays throughout the year. Each ceremony begins at 1:00 PM in the main church. Parents are asked to check in 15 minutes prior to the start. Space is limited. Parents are encouraged to register as soon as possible.

Baptism Preparation Class

The Baptism preparation class is designed for parents to prayerfully prepare for their child’s Baptism by understanding the spiritual significance of this event. Parents are asked to reflect on their own Baptism and its effect and meaning in their lives as they come together as a family to the waters of Baptism.

New parents are required to take the course prior to their child’s Baptism. Though the class is designed for parents, godparents are welcome, but not required, to attend.

If you are having your child or godchild baptized in another church, you are welcome to attend the class. A certificate will be provided at the end of the session.
