Baptism is your public decision to follow Jesus.

We invite everyone who has decided to follow Jesus to stand in the water with us and declare that Jesus is Lord and you are all in!

We are so glad that you are considering having your baby dedicated or baptized at Menlo Church. Baby dedication and baptism involve a commitment to be part of the spiritual community of Jesus.

The parent(s) are declaring that they are committed to following Jesus as part of a Christian community, to both grow in faith and pass along that faith to his or her child.

There is a required information class when we will talk over the theology of child dedication or baptism, the differences between the two, spiritual parenting, and the logistics of the actual moment.
