Baptisms at Augustana and East Sveadahl Lutheran Churches
"In baptism our gracious heavenly Father frees us from sin and death by joining us to the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. We are born children of a fallen humanity; by water and the Holy Spirit we are reborn children of God and made members of the church, the body of Christ. Living with Christ and in the communion of saints, we grow in faith, love, and obedience to the will of God. " (From the baptismal service in our worship hymnal, Evangelical Lutheran Worship)
As we are baptized in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, we are claimed as a "child of God." We are marked with the cross of Christ and are given God's gift of eternal love. Through baptism, for the rest of our life, we can be sure of God's faithful and unconditional love.
We are happy and excited that you want to be baptized, or you want your child baptized at AES Ministries. As soon as you know when you or your child would like to be baptized, please call the church office at 375-4792 and speak with Pastor Kathleen, or e-mail Pastor Kathleen for more information.
