Baptism celebrates the moment when a person makes a public commitment to follow Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord. Baptism is not an end in itself, but rather the beginning of a life-
Baptisms are a frequent feature of our services at St. George’s. We welcome both adults and infants to be our brothers and sisters in Christ. Services usually take place on the last Sunday of each month, with some pastoral preparation required beforehand.
Baptism is not a right, it is a gift from God that signifies his own remarkable generosity in sending His Son to die for us, and giving us His own life through His Holy Spirit. Certain undertakings are implied in the promises made publicly in baptism.
Baptism starts by recognising that we are all sinners in need of God’s mercy. Individual candidates then commit themselves to obey Christ and serve Him alone. The candidate must intend to develop a life of Christian discipleship, including regular involvement in the life and fellowship of the church.
The Alpha, Christianity Explored and Simply Christianity courses may provide adult candidates with valuable insight prior to baptism.
