Baptism with water in the name of the triune God is a visible sign of God’s unconditional love for us, which is why we support child baptism. We are, however, also open to baptising older children, teenagers and adults, and recognise baptism by other churches.
Through baptism we become joined to our Lord Jesus Christ in a unique way, therefore faith and trust in His grace are essential. Baptism also makes us a member of the world-wide family of God and of a specific local congregation. Therefore, in order for a child to be baptised in our church, it is important that at least one parent is a member. We also believe that it is vital for a child to have a godmother or godfather who help the parents raise the child in the Christian faith.
“Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
I have called you by name; you are mine.”
