In the Christian tradition, Baptism is one of the fundamental sacraments of faith because it symbolizes the incorporation of the individual into the corporate Body of Christ. Truro Anglican views Baptism as a solid, objective milestone in a person’s individual walk with Christ, signifying his/her obedience to the commands of our Lord.
During the sacrament of Baptism, an individual promises to obey Jesus Christ as Lord, and to raise his or her children in the Christian faith. Baptism services are held during Sunday worship times, in the presence of the gathered Truro Anglican family. This emphasizes that a believer’s fundamental commitment to God is public, not private, and Christians need the community of faith to live out their baptismal vows.
Adults, teenagers, and parents of children to be baptized should contact Mike Seawright, Director of Family Ministries.
