“I baptize you with water, but He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.” Mark 1:8
”People were bringing even infants to him that he might touch them; and when the disciples saw it, they sternly ordered them not to do it. But Jesus called for them and said, ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom belongs.'” Luke 18:15-16
At First UMC Marlin we welcome children and adults into the family of faith just as Jesus did through baptisms. Children and adults may be baptized at most Sunday worship services throughout the year. Typically, we baptize through sprinkling or pouring, but we can offer full immersion if requested. Baptism is a significant step of faith so we do require you to first meet with a Pastor to discuss your or your child’s baptism prior to scheduling this event.
To schedule your appointment and to set a date for your baptism, please contact the church office via email or call (254) 883-3152.
