About Baptism

In The United Methodist Church, baptism usually takes place during a worship service.    

 

It is important to know that baptism means that the person who is baptized becomes a member of the Church.  

 

Christening, giving a Christian name to a child, is included as a part of a baptismal service and is not offered separately as some other Christian denominations allow.    

 

United Methodist Churches do not conduct the baby dedication services.

Please contact the church office for additional information or to schedule a baptism.  Phone: (310) 670-3777; Email: Lyda@wumcla.org
