In baptism, God grants the gifts of forgiveness of sins, salvation and eternal life, and entrance into the body of Christ, which is the church, the gathered community of faith. In baptism, God claims us as one of God’s own children, marking us with the cross of Christ forever. In response to these gifts, we make some promises to God.
These are the promises made by the baptized or his/her parent(s) at baptism:
Faithfully bring him/her to the services of God’s house
Teach him/her the Lord’s Prayer, the Creed, and the Ten Commandments
Place in his/her hands the Holy Scriptures
Provide for his/her instruction in the Christian faith
If you are interested in baptism for yourself or for your child, please contact the pastor.
