Baptism

 

The sacrament of Baptism
 
The sacrament of Baptism
signifies entrance into the household of faith and is a symbol of repentance and inner cleansing from sin, a separation for the new birth in Christ Jesus and a mark of Christian discipleship. 
 
   In the United Methodist Church, when  we baptise an infant or and adult into the faith, we
acknowledge this as a public profession of faith in Christ
as our Liberator and Savior.
 
  We make a public
covenant to accept them in
love, to nurture them with compassion, to instruct them
with intent and purpose, and
to walk with them in dignity.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Three Methods of Baptism.

 
   The United Methodist Church practices three       methods of baptism.
  •    Sprinkling  (as done at            Cedar Grove UMC)
  •    Pouring
  •    Immersion
   Baptisms are performed at the requests of the family for infants and individually for adults.
 
   Baptism is symbolic of the            baptised person's desire to be saved, to be born again and to develop a personal relationship with God.          
 [See frequently
 asked questions below.]
 
 More importantly, baptism is symbolic of God's grace,    including love, kindness, forgiveness and favor.   It also symbolizes transforming power at work in the baptized person's life.

  Holy

 Communnion

 

The Sacrament of Holy Communion.

The sacrament of Holy Comunion is a representation of our redemption.  It is a memorial of the suffering and death of Christ and a token of love and union which Christians have for Christ.  The Lord's Supper is a memorial of Jesus' departure, a promise of his return, and the assurance of his Presence. 

 

 

 

The elements of the Lord's Supper are:

  • Bread is symbolic of Christ's body-the Bread of Life

  • Wine is symbolic of Christ's blood, which was shed for us.
