Baptisms

 

In the Congregational tradition, the sacrament of baptism is an outward and visible sign of the inward and invisible love of God in the life of an individual. It is a public act of the congregation on behalf of the church universal. Through waters of baptism, God embraces you — no matter who you are — and brings you into Christ's Church. You become vital not only to a local church, but the wider Church. You share in the life, death, and resurrection of Christ. The church promises to love, support, and care for you throughout your whole life. Baptized, you now participate fully in life of the Church and God's realm.


At First Church a person can be baptized at all ages—infants, children, youth, adults.  Please contact the church office for more information.
