  • About the Order for Baptism

    A person is incorporated into the universal chruch, the body of Christ, through the sacrament of baptism. The water, words, and actions of the sacrament are visible signs that convey Christian's burial and resurrection with Jesus Christ.

    In the United Church of Christ people are baptized with water as children or adults. Baptism with water and the Holy Spritit is the mark of their acceptance into the care of Christ's church, the sign and seal of their participation in God's forgiveness, and the beginning of their new growth into full Christian faith and life.

    Baptism is not only a personal celebration in the lives of the individual candidates and their families, but also a central celebration in the life of the local church.

    Baptism should occur only once in a person's life. If there is a question about whether baptism has taken place, a conditional phrase may be added as the person is baptized.

    By baptism, a person becomes a member of Christ's church and is welcome at Christ's table.
