Baptism & Profession of Faith

We each begin our Christian life through baptism, which symbolizes how God takes action by adopting and calling us family. Baptism is a special moment when a new life of commitment and covenant with God begins. When we are ready, profession of faith is a meaningful occasion when we publicly acknowledge the faith that lives inside of us.
