The United Methodist Church recognizes the two sacraments in which Christ himself participated: baptism and the Lord's Supper. Baptism joins Christians everywhere, and is a symbol of new life and forgiveness of sins. Persons of any age can be baptized once, and the method can be sprinkling, immersion or pouring. Through baptism, we are joined with the church and with Christians everywhere.
For this reason, baptisms often take place in the presence of the community of faith. The congregation welcomes their newest members and renews their covenant to live a life of discipleship.
Baptismal products will help every detail of this most sacred day be remembered as special. Celebrate with high quality supplies including bowls, certificates, shells, as well as books to educate about this momentous sacrament.
Baptism Linens symbolize that the baptized person is now clothed in the mantle of God and will start a clean life in God’s eyes and in the eyes of the church.
Light as a symbol of baptism is represented by Baptism Candles. The candle represents moving from death to life in Christ.
