CUMC Baptism

Baptism is a covenant between us and God. It is God’s word to us, proclaiming our adoption by grace and our word to God, promising our response of faith and love. Cameron UMC welcomes your inquiry about the Sacrament of baptism and we look forward to assisting your family with planning this special event during our Sunday worship service. Persons of all ages can be baptized at Cameron UMC. Baptism represents believers' repentance and forgiveness of sins. It also signifies a new birth and the beginning of a person's Christian discipleship.

Baptism Is a Sacred Symbol That Affirms Christian Beliefs:

Baptism, along with communion, is considered a sacred symbol that affirms a Christian's beliefs and signifies the acceptance of God's gifts through the Savior. Baptism is a welcoming and an initiation into the church. It signifies new birth through water and the Spirit.

Baptism Represents the Forgiveness of Sins

The Methodist Church acknowledges "one baptism for the forgiveness of sins." Therefore, for those who have accepted and welcomed Christ and repented for their sins, it is a symbol of rebirth and repentance.
