Through the sacrament of baptism, persons are welcomed into the church family. At baptism, promises are spoken—if the baptized person is a young child, promises are spoken on behalf of the child by the parents and congregation—promises to support the child as he or she grows in faith. If the baptized person is an older child or an adult, he or she speaks promises of faithfulness to Jesus Christ and the congregation offers promises of support to the person as he or she grows in faith.
At every baptism, regardless of the age of the baptized person, God’s promise of faithfulness is the most important spoken promise of all. Through the water of baptism, God promises to always love the baptized person with mercy and grace.
Baptism at New Hope is always a special event and is celebrated at either worship service on a date decided upon by the parents (or person) and the pastor. Please note that in order to have your child baptized at New Hope, at least one parent must be a member of the church.
