Baptism is one of two sacraments in the Presbyterian Church, the other being The Lord’s Supper. There are two types of baptism – infant baptism and adult baptism. Whether one is baptized as a child or an adult it is the same – an outward, visible sign of an inward, spiritual reality created by God through Jesus Christ. In presenting yourself, or your child, for the sacrament of Baptism you are indicating that you believe God is already at work in your heart/ in the heart of your child. Relying on the promises of Jesus we do present those for Baptism whom He has called to be His own.
When someone seeks to become a member of The Church of the Covenant and they are not already baptized, they need to become baptized and profess their faith publicly in their Lord Jesus Christ in a public service of worship. This is adult baptism. Similarly,
when a member wishes for their child to be baptized they can request that it be done and a date is assigned in the worship schedule. This is infant baptism. Contact the church office and read our Baptism Policy to learn more about being

It is our hope that through membership you will find a family of faith at our Church where you can use your gifts to the glory of God.

If you wish to join but have never been baptized by any denomination at any age, please contact us to discuss both baptism and membership. Contact the church office to learn more about the new member process.
