Baptism Meeting

  • Lake Middle School 1820 Lowell Boulevard Denver, CO, 80204 United States (map)

Baptism is one of the foundational practices of the Christian church. Historically, there has been universal agreement that all those who come to believe that Jesus is Lord should be baptized, but there has been two different positions on what to do with the children of those who believe in Jesus.  Some have believed that we should only baptize individuals who confess belief in Jesus and have thus left children unbaptized until they reach an age to make the decision for themselves.  The majority of the church has believed that the covenant structure of the Bible and the language used around “household baptisms” indicates that infants of believing parents should be baptized.  At Trinity we believe that the children of believing parents are to be raised as members of the covenant community and should therefore be baptized, but we will also leave this decision up to each household.  In other words, if your family does not believe that your infants should be baptized, we leave the responsibility for that decision up to the fathers and mothers of those children. 

Because we know you might have questions around infant baptism or might just desire to know more about baptism for yourself, please join us as we spend some time talking about baptism biblically and what that will look like at Trinity.  We really want to encourage you to make this meeting whether you would like to be baptized because you believe in Jesus or would like to have your child baptized or are simply curious about the practice of infant baptism.
