Marysville FUMC will be conducting an outdoor baptism service on Sunday afternoon August 12 at 3:00 pm. If you are interested in being baptized by immersion, we invite you to a 30 minute class on baptism which will be held on Sunday, July 29 at 5:00 pm. Please contact Pastor Brown at aaron@marysvillefumc if you are interested in being a part of this baptism service. (If you want to be baptized and cannot make the class, we can set up another meeting time to go over the vows.)
Someone asked, “Can I be rebaptized?” In the UMC, we believe that baptism is a sacrament that is made sacred by God’s presence in the act of baptism. Therefore, we believe that regardless of when and where you were baptized, your baptism is valid. Because your baptism is valid, there is never a need to do it over. Thus, there is no such thing as a rebaptism. However, some people who were baptized as an infant have a sincere desire to affirm their commitment to Christ by a public display of baptism. We are willing to do this for an individual with the understanding that it is not a rebaptism, but rather an affirmation of their first baptism.
