"Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.”" - Acts 2:38

The Anglican Church baptises adults and children, who know and love Jesus and intend to live a life of committed discipleship; as well as infants, whose sponsors are professing Christians and who promise to raise the child, within the ‘body of Christ’ – the Church.

Baptism involves the candidate (the person being baptised), or their sponsors, making promises about their future life as members of God’s family. The Church will also promise to support and uphold the candidates in their Christian life.

In Romans 6:3-4, the Apostle Paul says:

"Don't you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ were baptized into his death? We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life."

The water of Baptisms represents our being washed clean from the stain of sin (all our wrongdoing) and beginning a new life with Jesus. It is a serious commitment and one that should only be undertaken after serious reflection as to why baptism is important. We ask our baptism candidates to be regular attendees of our weekly services.

Baptism is not the culmination of the Christian life, but the beginning. The baptism service is a time of great joy and celebration as we officially welcome new members into the Christian family.
