The sacrament of Baptism marks a person’s admission into God’s Holy Universal Church. In baptism you receive God as your heavenly father: you can pray Our Father, who art in Heaven…; you receive Jesus Christ as saviour: when Christ died on the cross and was resurrected, He took away also your sins; you receive the Holy Spirit who will guide you through your life; and you receive God’s promise of life eternal with Him.

If you would like to have your child baptised, please contact the

.

You need two to five godparents (also known as sponsors). It is the godparents’ responsibility to be involved in your child’s Christian upbringing. The godparents must therefore be baptised Christians. At least two of the godparents must be present at the baptism service. Godparents do not have any legal rights or responsibilities.

You are welcome to have your family and friends take pictures or video tape during the service. Pictures can be taken from the pews, standing by the piano or the pulpit, or kneeling in the middle aisle. You may use flash light. Pictures can also be taken from the choir loft but the light is difficult from up there, and please do not disturb the organist. Please remind your photographers that they, too, are attending a church service.

Order of Service, bilingual version

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Christian Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Lad verden ej med al sin magtos rokke fra vor dåbes pagt;men giv, at al vor længsel måtil dig, til dig alene stå. Hellig, hellig, hellig er Herren, Gud den Almægtige, han som var, og som er, og som kommer. Menigheden rejser sig og svarer: Gud være lovet for sit glædelige budskab.
