"To be baptized as an infant is to be carried into the church in the arms of another." + Rev. Herb Davis
Baptism has long been the “initiation rite” of the Church. We are immersed in or sprinkled with water as a sign of new life. We are given our names. We make promises to learn, the grow, to resist injustice and evil. We are welcomed into the Church and united with God's people in a new way. Baptism is the sacrament of discipleship.
At King's Chapel, we gladly welcome to the baptismal water persons of any age who seek to be united with God and God's people, or in the case of young children those whose parents are ready to make a profession of faith on their behalf. Most of our baptisms take place during our Sunday service of Morning Prayer or on special holy days.
Our baptism service comes from the King's Chapel Book of Common Prayer. Following the tradition of the Christian Church, we baptize in the name of the Father, the Son, and the holy Spirit. These are the words of initiation from the Gospel according to Matthew universally-recognized by Orthodox Christians, Roman Catholics and Protestants alike.
