In the United Methodist Church, we believe that all people are loved by God and that God desires to enter into a relationship with all people. Baptism is the way that we recognize this relationship.
Who Can Be Baptized?
Baptism is the work of God sharing grace with individuals. In recognition of this, the United Methodist Church baptizes infants, adults and those who are not capable of speaking for themselves. Baptism being the work of God means that it does not matter where or when you were baptized, God's work is sufficient. We do not rebaptize anyone. If you were baptized in the another Christian tradition, we recognize the work God has done previously in your baptism and welcome you in membership into the church. During particular times through out the year, we reaffirm our baptism. If you have more questions about baptism, please call the church office and set up an appointment with one of our pastors.
Confirmation is the process in which person, who were baptized as children, accept for themselves the promises that were made on their behalf at their baptism. This process generally begins at Community in the Spring each year.
