Holy Baptism is a Covenant between an individual and God. A “Covenant” can be thought of as an intimate relationship. It is God’s word to us, proclaiming our adoption by grace and our word to God, promising our response of faith and love. Baptism anticipates a lifetime of further and deeper experiences of God and of Christian commitment.
The United Methodist Church recognizes baptism from other faiths and therefore does not “re-baptize”. Persons of any age are suitable candidates for baptism because Christ’s body, the Church, is a great family that includes persons of all ages.
If parenthood is in your future, please call 419.531.4236 and let us know. One of our Pastors would love to help you welcome your new child and pray with your new family either at the hospital or at home.
No! However it is highly recommended and it is through membership in the church that we learn how to know, love and serve God.
Set up a meeting with a Pastor to discuss the significance of baptism and next steps. You will choose a date that works for you and the church schedule.
We want to make sure that your baptism is a memorable occasion. For more info, call 419.531.4236.
