Baptism is one of the two sacraments, along with Holy Communion, that our church holds so dear. It is an important part of our lives and a call from Jesus to baptize everyone in His name.
Baptism is also a communal event. That is why we insist, unless there are unique circumstances, we always baptize during a Sunday service. The whole congregation witnesses the blessed event and also promises to help the newly baptize live into their baptismal covenant.
