Baptism

Connected with Christ in Baptism

In the water of baptism we are connected with Christ. In that washing we are baptized into Christ’s death, in order that our sins may die with him; we are promised that his Father will one day raise us to new life as Christ has been raised; and, empowered by the Spirit sent by Christ to dwell within us, we are called to follow him daily in new lives of faithful obedience to his word.

Baptized in the name of the Triune God, we are members of Christ’s Body and are gathered into the one family of God with all others who share that baptism. In this family, the Church, our lives are joined also with past generations of Christ’s people, as together we listen to the Word of God. All of us are nourished and instructed by the Holy Scriptures, which tell of God’s work in his people Israel and in Jesus the Messiah–the story of God’s love for the world.

At Immanuel, the rite of baptism normally occurs within the context of the Sunday morning worship service. Baptism is also the high point of the Easter Vigil service. We welcome infants and children into the church through baptism.
