Baptisms

Whether you’ve got a little one (or more than one) whom you would like to be adopted into the body of Christ, or whether you’ve come to faith later in life (and have not been baptized previously), the sacrament of baptism is a service in which the church embodies God’s love for God’s people.

Because God loves us first, even before we are able to return God’s love in any meaningful way, we welcome parents to bring their little ones to be baptized. Because baptism is a celebration of the way God’s love works its way through a covenant family that is bound by love and mutual promises, we do require that at least one of the parents be a confessing member of the congregation. If you would like to bring an infant to be baptized, the best thing to do is to call the church (908-725-4545) and arrange a meeting with the pastor.

If as an adult you feel that God’s love is reaching out to you in a way you’ve never experienced before, it may be that God is calling you to “come to the river” and be baptized. We welcome adults as well as children to be baptized into Christ. Again, call us and arrange a meeting with the pastor.
