Baptism is the outward and visible action that connects a person to God in a covenant relationship. In addition, the congregation not only witnesses the vows of the baptized, the parents, and the godparents, but also reaffirms their own baptismal vows and pledges to uphold the newly baptized in their Christian life and faith. Baptism is a powerful, transformational moment for the entire faith community as we welcome our newest members, vow to support them, and reaffirm our own baptismal vows.
Baptism is a time of great joy, and all Christians are blessed by those baptized. Baptism is about our journey together as Christians, and we at St. Thomas are here to support you and answer any questions you might have. We welcome you and invite you to Come with us on a journey with Christ.
