INFANT BAPTISM

We baptize babies at Hope!  We do so because even infants have a need for forgiveness (Psalm 51:5).  When Jesus gave his command to baptize “all nations” (Matthew 28:19-20), he makes it clear that baptism is intended for all people, regardless of how young they might be.  We also baptize babies because Scripture teaches that they too are able to believe through the power of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 18:6; Luke 18:15-17).  If you want your child to enjoy all of these blessings of God, please send us an e-mail or call the church office (803) 781-8673 to let us know of your interest.  We’re excited to be able to share the blessings of baptism with your child as well as the spiritual comfort that having your child baptized brings!
