Baptism is the visible sign of commitment as a follower of Jesus and is the most important (and exciting) decision you will ever make in your life. At St. Paul’s we are delighted to baptize both adults, older children who wish to make this commitment, and the young children of Christian parents who want them to grow up in the community of faith.
Holy Baptism, in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit:
- joins a person to Jesus Christ in his death, resurrection, and eternal life;
- makes a person a member of Christ’s spiritual body, which is the church;
- gives the gift of the Holy Spirit.
We want you to be able to make an informed decision about baptism, so we invite adult candidates and parents of young children to be regular participants in Sunday morning worship for at least three months before a final decision is made. If you are new to St. Paul’s and wishing baptism for yourself or your child, we invite you to use this time to determine if this is the right spiritual home for you.
