Baptism

We receive our identity from others, from the expectations of friends and colleagues, from the labels society puts upon us, and from the influence of family.

To become Christian is to receive a new identity. You no longer allow others to tell you who you are. Christ now claims you and instructs you. A Christian is one who has “put on Christ.”

Baptism celebrates becoming that new person. That is why the church’s ritual begins with putting off the old, renouncing sin and the evil powers of the world, and pledging our loyalty to Christ.

I want to be baptized

Requests must be submitted at least 7 days before the requested date. If possible, we try to avoid baptisms on communion Sundays (1st Sunday of the month) but will try to accommodate if other options have been exhausted. Submitting this form does not guarantee your baptism, but we will do our best to meet your request.

Is the person being baptized an infant or child who cannot answer for themselves?*
