God is alive, active, and transforming lives, and we want to celebrate those who have put their faith in Him as they give a public expression of that faith through baptism.
(From our doctrinal statement)
At Rockland, as established by the authority of the Holy Scriptures, we hold Baptism to be an act of initiation into the Christian Fellowship of one who, by public declaration of faith and repentance, shall affirm belief in what God's love has done in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, as well as affirming his intent to engage actively in the extension of that love.
(We also baptize children and infants who have not reached the age of accountability as an act of dedication on the part of the parents to rear such infants or children according to the teaching of Christ, trusting that when such infants or children reach the age of accountability they will confirm this act of dedication/baptism for themselves through Confirmation.)
If you have questions about baptism, please contact one of us for more information
