Baptism is God’s Gift to Us
We Baptize because it’s what Jesus has commanded us to do! In Baptism, God has chosen us, and we believe that through the waters of Baptism we receive the gift of the Holy Spirit, which grants us faith in Jesus Christ. This gift is eternal and provides forgiveness of sins and a new birth as a child of God.
In the scriptures it is clear that entire households were baptized—including children—so, we welcome and encourage parents to have their children baptized in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. As they grow in years, it is our privilege as parents to help our children learn what it means to have been “marked with the cross of Christ and sealed with the Holy Spirit.”
Be not afraid! You are not alone in this. The church also takes great joy in helping you raise your child in the faith. (See our children’s ministries and confirmation program).
Whether you are an adult seeking Baptism, or have a child you wish to have baptized, the first step is to contact Pastor Justin Vetrano. We are confident you will find this to be a very welcoming and accessible journey, filled with great joy!
