Baptism

Holy Baptism

In Baptism, God lays claim upon the life of the baptized, calling them into the community of believers and bestowing upon them God’s good gifts! We are excited to participate in this action of God for the sake of God’s world! If you are ready to experience God’s claim on your life or the life of your child, please choose a few available Sundays for consideration and contact us to plan a baptism!

FAQs

  • We baptize children and adults of all ages, understanding that baptism is God’s action of love for us!
  • Baptisms typically take place during a Sunday Worship Service, though extenuating circumstances may be considered.
  • We baptize in a variety of ways as requested by the family, understanding that God’s action of love cannot be limited by the amount of water or the style of baptism used.
  • We believe in ONE baptism, as baptism is about God’s claim upon us. You do not need to be re-baptized to be part of our community; God’s claim upon our lives cannot be revoked by any human institution or difference in denominational affiliation. You are welcome to discuss reaffirming God’s action in your baptism with Pastor Jen, should you have a desire to do so.
