Baptism with water is the sacrament by which we enter the Christian Community. In this act we express the love of God which is extended to all, and that love draws us together into God’s Community, the Church.
Knox United Church baptizes both adults and children presented by their parents(s) or guardian(s) who vow to raise their children in Christian faith and to encourage them to participate in the activities of Christ’s Church. It is strongly recommended that at least one parent be baptized.
In preparation for the baptism of infants, parents(s) or guardian(s) presenting children for baptism must attend a seminar held prior to baptism in order that they may clearly understand the commitment they are making in their vows before God.
Infant Baptism Dates
Baptism Seminars are required for parents and godparents of infants and young children being offered for baptism.
