In the Sacrament of Holy Baptism, “we are initiated into Christ’s holy church, … incorporated into God’s mighty acts of salvation and given new birth through water and the Spirit,” the Introduction to the Baptismal Covenant says. “All this is God’s gift, offered to us without price.”
Through the waters of baptism, we are cleansed of our sin and born into a new way of living. Whether an infant or adult, this is just the beginning.
Methodism has always allowed persons to choose sprinkling, pouring, or immersion as the mode of baptism. At Grace United Methodist Church, we use either sprinkling or pouring because we do not have the capability for an immersion baptism in the sanctuary. Water is administered in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit in accord with Matthew 28:19.
We invite you to talk to the Pastor if you would like to be baptized or would like to have your child baptized.
