Baptism is a celebration of God’s grace – His utterly undeserved, unmerited love and favour. When we receive a child in baptism, we are attesting to the divine truth that even before this child was born, even before he/she can make a decision on his/her own, God through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, has already done everything necessary for his/her salvation. All he/she can do is accept it by faith! Infant baptism is a reminder to all of us that the Kingdom of God is never earned or deserved but is, in our Lord’s own words, reserved for those who receive it in child-like trust.
The next Baptism is on Mother’s Day, May 14, 2017 – class is Sunday, May 7 @ noon in the Chapel
