Baptism initiates a covenant of relationship between God and the baptized person and between the church and the person who is baptised. When you are baptized or affirm your baptism, the congregation enacts God's grace toward you and welcomes you into the community of faith. As a response to God's gracious initiative, you will be asked to pledge your loyalty to the life and ministries of The United Methodist Church and to promise to uphold the local church with your prayers, presence, gifts and service. As a baptized Christian, you will be part of the universal church and part of a particular community of Christians where you are known and watched over in love.
Baptism is one of two sacrements that United Methodists recognize. (The other is the Lord's Supper.)
