What Does a Baptism Minister Do?
Baptism is an important ceremony in many religions. A baptism minister can help you with the ceremony so that the participant or participants will be able to continue their journey of faith after the baptism is complete. Your baptism minister will say prayers that are meant to cleanse infants and adults of sin and welcome them into the family of God. The minister should also welcome members of the community to the ceremony and ask them to support the person being baptized. Once the ceremony begins, the participant will be cleansed with water. They are either dunked underwater, or water is poured or sprinkled onto the head. After the ceremony is done, everyone will rejoice and celebrate the new baptism. Ministers will keep records of all baptisms performed including the name and the date of the ceremony. This important milestone is made official through the help of a professional baptism minister.
