Baptisms

Thank you for your interest in a baptism at St. Peter’s.

Lutherans believe that Baptism is an act of God’s grace. In this simple ceremony of Word and water – as we are baptized in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit – we are made a part of the family of God for all time and eternity.

We do nothing to deserve or earn this privilege; it is the gift of God.

Hence, Lutherans baptize people of all ages – from infancy up. Parents and sponsors of young children accept the responsibility to teach and nourish the child’s faith journey. Youth and adults seeking baptism explore its meaning for themselves in preparation.

No distinction is made at St. Peter’s with regard to baptisms performed for children whose parents may be married, or unmarried, as the case may be.

All baptisms normally take place in the church sanctuary.

There is no charge for a Baptism at St. Peter’s. This is part of our ongoing ministry to our members, their families, and to our community. We pray that God would use this special event to strengthen your own faith and your commitment to the church. A baptism is a wonderful opportunity for renewal and re-dedication to God for all the members of your family. May God bless the important decisions and plans you are making at this time.
