Lutherans believe that Baptism is a means of grace; it is a way in which God's amazing love for the world embraces us, one by one, and connects us in the family of faith, the church. Lutherans are part of the majority of Christian communities that baptize young children as their parents and other loved ones present them in faith. Bethel's pastors are also delighted to baptize older children and adults who desire to be baptized as they confess faith in God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. At whatever age an individual is baptized, God's gift in baptism is lived out as the baptized person is encouraged in a life of following Jesus. To plan for a baptism at either one Bethel's two campuses, contact the church office to schedule a visit with a pastor to prepare for the celebration of this sacrament.
