In the Protestant tradition, there are two and only two sacraments acknowledged as rooted in the life and ministry of Jesus Christ: the first is holy communion, and the second is baptism. As in Jesus’ time, baptism signifies a “rite of commitment,” one in which we receive the free gift of God’s grace and unite with others throughout the world and across time who confess Jesus as their guide and savior. Through baptism, we commend ourselves, or a child, into a life of discipleship in Christ. It is in this spirit that vows are made, and promises given. In our tradition, we sprinkle water on the person’s (baby’s) head. Please know we joyfully welcome you on this journey. For more information, please contact our Senior Minister.
