Baptism at St. Timothy's
At St. Timothy's we believe that in Holy Baptism a person (baby or adult) is fully initiated by water and the Holy Spirit into Christ’s Body, the Church. In this act God adopts us, making us members of the church and inheritors of the Kingdom of God (BCP, pp. 298, 858). In baptism we are made sharers in the new life of the Holy Spirit and the forgiveness of sins. Baptism is also the foundation for all one's future participation and ministry in the Church.
It has become our practice to reserve baptisms for special Feast Days in the church calendar called 'Baptismal Feasts', including:
- The Baptism of the Lord (early January)
- Easter Vigil (Easter Eve)
- Pentecost (late May to early June)
- The Bishop's visitation (varies each year)
- All Saints Sunday (early November)
