Baptism signifies entry into a faith community
While baptism is a personal act, it symbolizes an entry into a collective of faith that pledges to:
Commit to standing against wrongdoing.
Extend forgiveness to others, mirroring God’s forgiveness.
Serve Christ in All
Seek and serve Christ in every person.
Pursue Justice and Peace
Strive for fairness and harmony among all, respecting the dignity of each individual.
Protect God’s Creation
Safeguard the integrity of the Earth.
Renew Life: Respect, sustain, and revitalize life on Earth.
Parents who bring their children for baptism make a promise to nurture them within the Christian community’s faith and life.
All baptized individuals are encouraged to contribute to God’s work in the world through their time, talents, and financial resources.
