Baptism

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you.  And remember, I am with you always to the end of the age. Matthew 28: 19

Baptism is one of two sacraments in the Presbyterian Church (Communion or The Lord’s Supper is the other).  As such we consider baptism to be God’s gift to the church.  We baptize infants, youth, or adults whom God calls and claims and through baptism invite them into the life of the church.  Baptism is a sign and seal of God’s grace and a welcoming into the Body of Christ (the Church). 

The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) believes that persons of other denominations are part of one body of Christian believers; therefore, we recognize and accept baptisms by other Christian churches.

If you are interested in discussing a possible baptism either for an adult or infant, please contact Pastor Lance at the church office. For an infant baptism, ordinarily, one or more of the parents should be an active participant in the life of the church. Baptisms are administered as part of the Sunday worship.
