Baptism

At LCPC, we believe that as you commit to following Jesus Christ and join the church, this includes baptism. If you were baptized as a child, infant or adult in another recognized Christian Church, there is no need to be baptized a second time. We recognize the authenticity of that baptism if it was done “in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.” Please see the Presbyterian (USA) Book of Order for a more in-depth explanation of our beliefs.

If you are not yet a member of LCPC and want to have your child baptized or be baptized yourself, we ask that you join the church first.  You can contact Barbara Pettit barbara@lacanadapc.org  for more information about the next membership class.

Please contact Gloria Hill, Sr. Admin. Asst. at Gloria@lacanadapc.org or (818) 790-6708, X 220 to arrange a date for your baptism.

 

CHILDREN:

For the baptism of children of LCPC members, you and your children or infant will need to meet with the Pastor doing the baptism prior to the baptism. Parents and children can be baptized together if desired. Please note, we generally work with only one family at each service, and there are some Sundays on which we cannot have baptisms due to Communion or other special events.

If you are not yet a member of LCPC and want to have your child baptized, we ask that you join the church first.  You can contact Barbara Pettit barbara@lacanadapc.org  for more information about the next membership class.

ADULTS:

If you are not a member of LCPC, please contact Barbara Pettit at (818) 790-6708, X 215 or barbara@lacanadapc.org to sign up to take the membership class first. After you have joined LCPC, you can then be baptized in one of our worship services. If you have not received Christian baptism, adults in the class are baptized during a worship service of your choice.
