Baptismal Fonts

Traditionally Baptismal fonts sit near the entrance to the church building because the font is our entrance into life in Christ. We enter the church physically and spiritually in the same place.

The font remains there, filled with water, so Christians entering the building can touch it and sprinkle it, cross themselves with it, and remember their own baptisms: the reason that they are here is to pray and worship.

It is also there so that, as Christians leave the church building, they can be reminded again of their promises to pray to love all they meet as Christ, to offer service to those in need, and to be Christ to the world.

We remember our baptism as we leave the building because our baptism is the most important thing that we take with us into the world.
