Baptism promises us forgiveness and life!
Baptism welcomes us into a lifelong relationship with a God who loves us unconditionally. We are washed in the promise that nothing can ever separate us from God, and sealed with the power of the Spirit.
Lutheran Christians baptize people of all ages. Just as newborn children are loved and included in the family, God welcomes us from the start. We believe that in baptism, God pours out faith upon us and promises to always be with us.
In the Bible, God uses water to create, heal, rescue those who are in trouble, cleanse, and satisfy those who are thirsty for compassion and community. No matter how broken or disappointing our life may feel, baptism assures us that God will never abandon us. Even when we die, God does not let go. We are God’s children forever.
We believe baptism is a public event for the whole family of God to celebrate. Preparing for a baptism at Mount Olivet is easy and fun. Please contact our Pastor to find out more.
Jesus commands us to “go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.” (Matthew 28:19) Our community at Mount Olivet does our best to follow this command!
