Baptism

The Covenant Church celebrates both the sacrament of baptism for adults, youth, children, and infants as well as the dedication of infants and young children. To participate in our next scheduled baptism celebration or dedication and to prepare yourself or your child for that sacred moment, choose from the following.

The METHODS of Baptism

While we prefer immersion (going all the way under water) for adults, the preferred method of baptism for infants is sprinkling or pouring. Since baptism is not the means of salvation (faith is the means of salvation) nor is water the active agent in the cleansing of our sin (it is God who cleanses us of our sin through faith) the method is not as significant.
