What is Baptism?

Baptism is a sign and seal that marks a person as belonging to the community of God and participating in Christ’s promises. Performed by sprinkling with water in the name of the triune God (Father, Son and Holy Spirit), this is one of the two sacraments practiced at Midtown Fellowship.
