Children and Baptism

 
1. How do I arrange to have my child baptized?
Our pastor is eager to talk with parents who want to have their children baptized and with adults who want to be baptized themselves. Call the pastor at the church office, (757) 595-1313, to schedule a baptism date and an appointment.

The Presbyterian Book of Order states: "Children of believers are to be baptized without undue delay, but without undue haste." It also states, "When a child is being presented for baptism, ordinarily the parents(s) or one(s) rightly exercising parental responsibility shall be an active member of the congregation." This is because Presbyterians believe that baptism is a sign and symbol of inclusion of grace and covenant with God and the Church. Being nurtured in the Christian faith by a Christian family and a by a loving congregation are important for spiritual growth.
