Based on what the Bible teaches, baptism is for the wawshing away of sins and we believe babies are without sin. The bible gives examples that becoming a Christian is a conscious choice a person makes, and not something that another person makes them do. Only those who have reached the “age of accountability” are baptized. So, while there is no exact age, only those old enough to understand and believe the gospel are considered fit subjects for baptism.
However, while we don’t baptize infants, we host an annual “Baby Dedication” a few times a year where everyone from the community (visitors and church members alike), are welcome to join! During the Baby Dedication, we pray for the babies and their families.
We always receive a great turnout from the community, and it’s one of our most popular yearly events.
