Baptism at Cliftondale Congregational Church in Saugus

Saugus Church Baptism

Infant Baptism is many things…

  • It is a way of introducing your child to your community of faith–your church family.
  • It is a special dedication of your child, a way of asking God to bless this miraculous gift, this special individual you’ve been given.
  • It is also a dedication of yourselves as parents.
  • It publicly confirms your commitment to Christ.
  • It is a symbol of the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ, and the outpouring of the Holy Spirit.

Your child’s baptism can be the first chapter in an exciting journey of faith. The values your child learns will shape his/her character. Without a religious upbringing, children are left to choose their own rules in life, or to reject all authority. A few drops of water alone will not ensure that a child will mature into a virtuous person of faith. However, when we follow Jesus, we are given enough light to take the next step, and the power to live effective lives for God’s glory. Our Pastor meets with parents to discuss the meaning of baptism.

Adult Baptism

Our church also practices “Believers Baptism” for adults who have made a profession of faith and wish to be baptized. Those interested meet with the Pastor to review the basic teachings of Scripture and the Christian life of faith.

Joshua 1 | You Can’t Get There From Here

You can't get there from here” - Joshua 1, Pastor Bob Leroe, Cliftondale Congregational Church, Saugus, Massachusetts (10 Jan 2016)

Mainers like to say when giving directions, “You can't get there from here”...or more accurately, “You can't get they-ahh from hee-yahh.” The children of Israel must have thought that, journeying through the wilderness to the promised land. It had been a long, grueling journey. Someone ... Read More
