Grace United Church
What Is Baptism?

Baptism is one of the sacraments of the Church: that is, Baptism is a 'visible sign of an invisible grace'. 

That grace is the creating, sustaining and saving love of God.

Baptism is a time to celebrate and recognize that our children are gifts of God, who loves them and intends for them to receive all the blessings God gives.

As parents and congregation, we recognize that our children belong to God and the community of faith - they belong because we belong.

Baptism is a time when parents reaffirm their faith.
