Baptism and Communion
What Is a Sacrament?
The word sacrament is the Latin translation of the Greek word mysterion. From the early days of the church, baptism was associated with the mystery that surrounds God’s action in our lives. That means that at best our words can only circumscribe what happens, but not define it. We cannot rationally explain why God would love us “while we were yet sinners” and give his only begotten Son that we should not perish but have eternal life. That is the most sacred and unfathomable mystery of all.
We recognize the two sacraments of Baptism and Eucharist (Communion). Since we believe these were instituted by God for all people, we welcome all people to participate. You do not need to be a member of this particular church.
If you are thinking of having your children baptized, or baptism as an adult, we would love to help. Please contact us for more information and to see if this is something we can help you with.
