Baptism is the church's proclamation and experience that we are who we are because God has first chosen us, loved us and called us into His kingdom.
Baptism by water is a visible sign of God's love toward His children and is essentially something that God does. The profound truth and beauty of baptism is not so much that we give our children or ourselves to God – but that God chooses us as God's own.
Baptism is offered to adults and children upon their profession of faith in Jesus Christ, as well as to the infants of parents who are members of FPCL. The baptism of infants witnesses to the truth that God's love claims us even before we are able to respond in faith. Parents/grandparents who are not members of our church or who are wanting to preserve baptism for the time of their child's personal profession of faith in Jesus may present their children for dedication.
