Baptism

And this water symboliImage goes here.zes baptism that now saves you also—not the removal of dirt from the body but the pledge of a good conscience toward God. It saves you by the resurrection of Jesus Christ, who has gone into heaven and is at God's right hand—with angels, authorities and powers in submission to him
1 Peter 3:21-22

 

Holy Baptism is a Covenant between an individual and God.  It is God’s word to us, proclaiming our adoption by grace and our word to God, promising our response of faith and love.

Knightdale UMC welcomes your inquiry about the Sacrament of Baptism and we look forward to assisting your family with planning this special day.  It is our desire to make your baptism a most memorable occasion.

Persons of all ages can be baptized at KUMC.  If you are not yet a member, we encourage you to seek membership as soon as possible after being baptized.  We baptize by sprinkling Holy Water and make the sign of the cross on the forehead to invite the presence of the Holy Spirit.  

The United Methodist Church recognizes baptisms from other faiths and churches and therefore does not “re-baptize” rather we reaffirm our baptism in a service of remembrance.  For information on baptism, contact the pastor or church office.
