Holy Baptism

Baptism is the sacrament of being initiated into Christ’s holy Church. Whether of an adult or a child, baptism also marks the beginning of an intentional faith journey toward becoming followers of Jesus Christ.

One does not travel alone on this journey. Parents and the church family make a promise to help guide the newly baptized to live as Christ’s body in the world.

How do you arrange for a baptism?

If you are already a member of First Church, contact the Pastor to schedule an appointment. At that time, the Pastor will discuss the meaning and responsibility of baptism with you so that you understand the intention of the vows you will take or the vows you will take on behalf of your child. If you are not a member, the first step to take is for you to meet with the Pastor and then enter the membership classes.
