"Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them  in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age." - Matthew 28:20

Holy Baptism

Baptism, along with Holy Communion, is one of two sacraments observed in the Lutheran Church. In Baptism God:

  • saves us from the forces of evil
  • makes us heirs of the Kingdom of God
  • raises us new life
  • makes us into children of God
  • makes us members of the body of Christ:  the church
  • gives us the promise and hope of the bodily resurrection

Baptism is done with water in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We practice both infant and adult baptism in the Lutheran Church. Lutherans believe baptism is done only once in a persons life and therefore do not practice rebaptism.
