The Youth Group went caroling at several places and at Cedar Ridge Dec.10, 2017.
Baptism is administrated to all those whom God calls.
We need the Holy Spirit’s help to respond to God’s call, the key factor in Baptism is not the age or maturity of the person being baptized, but rather the church’s corporate response in claiming the promises sealed in the sacrament.
Both parents and the congregation are part of that corporate response. In the case of infants, who, of course, are unable to claim God’s promises for themselves, their parents or guardians respond on their behalf.
The congregation also makes its promise to nurture the baptized person in the faith.
The vow of the local congregation, which represents the church universal, is an important aspect of the Baptismal rite.
