WE WELCOME THE NEWLY BAPTIZED!
January 12, 2020
The Baptism of Our Lord
ABOUT THE RITE OF HOLY BAPTISM
Baptism is initiation into the community of Christian believers, the Body of Christ. At Baptism we profess our faith in the Holy Trinity and we make very specific promises:
- To continue in the apostles’ teaching and
fellowship, in the breaking of the bread, and in the
- To persevere in resisting evil, and, whenever
we fall into sin, to repent and return to the Lord
- To proclaim by word and example the Good
News of God in Christ
- To seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving
your neighbor as yourself
- To strive for justice and peace among all
people, and respect the dignity of every human
Our choice to keep those promises, with God’s help, for the rest of our lives is what makes us Episcopalians.
