The sacrament of entrance to the community of faith.Baptisms are performed during our 10AM Sunday morning worship service in our Sanctuary, thereby involving First Presbyterian Church’s congregation in the promise to participate in the Christian nurture and encouragement in the life of the baptized. It is one of the most significant parts of our worship experience.
Many Presbyterians are baptized as infants as a sign of God’s love and in recognition of their welcome into our church family. Presbyterians baptize adults on their profession of faith, as well as the children of church members. Children will speak for themselves and confirm their baptisms in a confirmation program during their teen years. Adults are baptized following instruction.
