Baptism by Water and the Spirit


The United Methodist Church recognizes the two sacraments in which Christ himself participated: baptism and the Lord's Supper. Baptism is a symbol of new life and forgiveness of sins. Persons of any age can be baptized once, and the method can be sprinkling, immersion or pouring. Through the waters of baptism, we are cleansed of our sin and born into a new way of living.
