Life Made New in Christ
“We are a people of the water. We worship a God whose love flows through water.” These are the words you will hear when the waters of baptism are blessed. They are powerful words that remind us of the sanctity of the holy sacrament of baptism. The water cleanses us and it reawakens us to a new life with Christ. In the United Methodist Church we believe in one baptism, meaning we recognize the baptisms of other Christian denominations and we do not re-baptize. If you desire to remember your baptism, we can offer a reaffirmation of your baptismal vows.
In the United Methodist Church, we believe that baptism is an act of God’s grace and it signifies our commitment to live in the Way of Jesus, being transformed by God’s grace every day. We baptize all ages and sprinkling, pouring, and immersion are appropriate ways of being baptized. If you are interested in baptism, please contact us here. You will be required to schedule a visit with one of our pastors before a baptism is scheduled.
On the first Sunday of every month we celebrate the sacrament of Holy Communion. In the United Methodist Church, we invite everyone to participate and no person is denied the opportunity to receive God’s grace as expressed through the bread and the juice. We believe in an open table because we believe God’s grace and love is open to all people and is able to satisfy the hunger in our souls. When you come forward to receive the bread and the juice, you are invited to come with a repentant heart that is open to receiving the fullness of God’s mercy and grace.
