Holy Baptism is one of two sacraments in the United Methodist Church. Baptism is a covenant between an individual and God. It is God's word to us, proclaiming our adoption by grace. It is our word to God, promising our faith and love as our response.
Persons of all ages can be baptized at Church of the Palms. We baptize by sprinkling of water and marking the sign of the cross on the forehead with anointing oil, 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".
