Baptism is the sign and seal of the covenant of grace made by God through Jesus and extended to us. In baptism, God claims us as beloved children and members of Christ’s body, the church, washing us clean from sin as we renounce the power of evil and seek the will and way of God.
INFANTS & CHILDREN
The baptism of a young child expresses that it is God who chooses us for faith, discipleship, and salvation. Without God, we have no power to claim these things for ourselves! We firmly believe that children are included in God’s covenant of Grace along with all Christian believers. Naturally, a baby is too small to know what a baptism is all about. So, parents bring their child for baptism on the basis of their own faith, with the hope that the child will grow in faith, and love and serve God.
YOUTH & ADULTS
Adults and youth who wish to publicly confess their faith and enter the Church (and who haven’t been previously baptized) can be baptized. Baptism promotes future growth. No matter at what age you’re baptized, baptism celebrates the start of a new life with Christ. By being baptized, you’ve taken the first step on a life-changing (and life-giving) journey of faith.
