Welcoming individuals into Christ’s ministry and the fellowship of the Church is our greatest joy and baptism is how we do it!
Baptism is the Sacrament through which individuals embrace a life-long covenant relationship with Jesus Christ, in the fellowship of the Christian Church. A person who desires baptism publicly declares their faith in the Triune God and promises to be part of Christ’s work of restoring and healing God’s creation.
The ideal is for individuals, even as young children, to speak and act for themselves in baptism. The Episcopal Church DOES NOT expect that baptism happen as soon as possible after birth. We believe that God loves each and every human being just as much before baptism as after. Therefore, believer baptism is the ideal circumstance. Individuals who seek baptism and who can speak for themselves should contact the Rector. The Rector and candidate will together plan a course of baptismal preparation.
