Godly Play- Baptism

Janelle tells us the story of baptism from her living room. Enjoy! Below is our baptismal covenant, as a reminder to us all the words we spoke (or someday will speak) at our own baptism!

Celebrant:Do you believe in God the Father?

People:I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.

Celebrant:Do you believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of God?

People:I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord. He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried.He descended to the dead. On the third day he rose again. He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again to judge the living and the dead.

Celebrant:Do you believe in God the Holy Spirit?

People:I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.
