Sacraments

     Baptism

  • We understand baptism to be a sign and seal of our membership in the Body of Christ, and the means through which we are adopted into the family of God.
  • We understand baptism to be a one-time event. We do honor and remember our baptisms on the occasion of a new baptism or on special days during the church year.
  • We baptize infants at the request of their parents. We believe that baptism is God’s gracious gift to all human beings regardless of age, and that parents may accept that gift on behalf of their children. When a baby is baptized the parents promise to raise the child in the Christian faith; the congregation also promises to support and nurture the faith of the child and the parents.

     The Lord’s Supper (Communion or Eucharist)

  • The Table is Christ’s table and as such all are welcome to participate.
  • In The Lord’s Supper we participate in the final meal of Jesus’ life on earth, in which he passed bread and wine to his disciples and called them his body and blood.  We understand the elements to represent the presence of Christ in our midst; through participation in The Lord’s Supper we remember Christ’s giving of his life for all humanity. Participating in this ritual is a sign and seal of our membership in the family of God and the Body of Christ.
  • We share the elements through the ritual of intinction, in which bread is received and dipped into a common cup before being consumed.
