People of all ages can be baptized at Resurrection. Non-members are encouraged to seek membership as soon as possible after being baptized. We baptize by sprinkling Holy Water and making the sign of the cross on the forehead with anointing oil to invite the presence of the Holy Spirit.
The United Methodist Church recognizes baptisms from other faiths and churches and therefore does not re-baptize people, but we do encourage people to attend a special baptism worship service to remember their baptisms.
Sprinkling and anointing with oil occur during all worship services on select Sundays throughout the year. We baptize by sprinkling Holy Water and make the sign of the cross on the forehead with anointing oil to invite the presence of the Holy Spirit.
To be baptized, you must attend a preparatory meeting where one of our pastors will discuss the history, theology, meaning and responsibilities of baptism and its associated membership in the church. To schedule this meeting or ask other questions about baptism, email Pastor Penny Ellwood or call her at (816) 389-8900.
To schedule your baptism service, please fill out our baptism registration form.
