Baptism at BelPres

In the sacrament of baptism we celebrate God’s gift of grace through faith in Jesus Christ. Infant and child baptism is based on the faith of the parents. Older children and adults are baptized by affirmation of their own faith. Baptisms are held during worship services because the congregation is invited to support and encourage the person being baptized.

We also offer dedication as well. To speak with someone about having your child dedicated, please email us and we would be happy to set up a time to talk with one of our pastors.

We ask that you attend a baptism class prior to your child’s baptism. If this does not work for your schedule, we will work with you to make other arrangements. If you have already attended a baptism class for the baptism of a previous child then there’s no need to take the class again and we will happily move forward scheduling your child’s baptism at a date and service time that works for your family. Check the list of dates below for upcoming baptism date possibilities.

When you are ready to schedule your child’s baptism please complete the baptism or dedication registration form found below and return it to us at baptism@belpres.org.

Baptism Classes

Baptism Classes are offered the first Sunday of most months. The instructor will help you prepare for your child’s baptism and explain our tradition. Child care is available. Please email us at baptism@belpres.org to register for the class.
