Throughout the history of the church, baptism is a watershed next step in one’s faith journey. It is a specific moment in which God’s grace is poured out as we seek to live out new lives in Christ.
The Covenant Church believes the Holy Scriptures to be the source of the church’s life, its preaching and teaching, and the means for its renewal. Jesus said, “If you continue in my word, you are truly my disciples; and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free” (John 8:31b-32). Included in the ministry of the word is the observance of baptism and Holy Communion as sacraments of the church expressly commanded by our Lord. They are visible signs of the invisible grace of Jesus Christ. The Covenant Church is open to all believers and recognizes infant and believer baptism as biblical forms of that sacrament and includes the practice of both in its ministry.
