Description:

NewWaterBaptism

Baptism by water is provided at St. John's MCC and respects the varying beliefs about baptism and its power and significance.

Baptism can happen in many ways.

  • Infant Baptism: Infants and small children may be baptized signifying the intent of the caregivers, with the support of the congregation, to dedicate the child’s life to learning about and growing in God. In these cases, the child will have to decide for themselves as they grow how they will continue and commit to their own spiritual life.
  • Believers Baptism: Adults or Youth who have made a proclamation of faith for themselves, to dedicate themselves to their own spiritual growth as a part of the community with support of the community.
  • Mode of Baptism: Baptisms may be done by sprinkling of water, pouring of water, or immersion in water.
  • Baptismal re-affirmations either as individuals or as an act of congregational worship.
