We celebrate three modes of Baptism: Immersion, pouring, or sprinkling. All baptisms are done with the three-part blessing, “in the name of the Father, of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.” It is a personal decision of the person being baptized as to which mode they choose.
We believe that baptism unites us with Christ’s church. Baptism brings new members into the fellowship of the church and marks the beginning of a process of growth toward God. We believe that every member of Lebanon Methodist church should understand the significance and practice of baptism and participate in the baptismal celebration whenever possible, help new members grow in Christ and fulfill their baptismal commitment, and renew their own baptismal commitment, when appropriate, to strengthen their faith.
