Baptism is a sacrament representing the work of the Holy Spirit, who was poured out on God’s people to carry out his work of cleansing from sin and empowering for a new life.
At First Presbyterian, baptisms are done during the 8:30 a.m. and 11 a.m services. Evening baptisms (6:30 p.m.) are also an option and can be arranged based on the worship schedule. Prior to the baptism, parents will meet with the Associate Pastor of Worship and Community Life, John Franks, to further discuss the implications of baptism and raising a covenant child.
To schedule a baptism, please contact Beth Benson, 706.262.8849.
