Baptism

Baptism at Peace: Connecting Us with God's Community

Baptism is one of two primary sacraments for the Lutheran Church (Holy Communion is the other). We believe Baptism is a means of grace; in other words, it is one of the significant ways God’s love is shown to us. Since Baptism connects us with God’s community, all Peace baptisms are conducted within a public worship gathering.

Baptism connects us with:
**God’s promise - Nothing will separate us from God’s love (Romans 8:37)
**God’s people - We are mysteriously connected with all who have gone before us, all who live with us, and all who will follow. (Hebrews 12:1)
**God’s possibility - The gift of God’s Holy Spirit energizes us for our daily lives and embraces us forever with this assurance, “You are a child of God, chosen and marked by my love, the pride of my life.” (Mark 1:11 The Message Bible)

At Peace, we require a one-hour baptismal workshop for parents who desire baptism for their children, or adults who wish to be baptized. These baptismal workshops occur on the second Sunday of each month at 9:45am in the Sanctuary Narthex. For more information, or to sign up for an upcoming workshop please email us or call 614-337-1000.
