Scripture and our Lutheran Confessions call Baptism a second birth, the creation of a brand-new life begun in Christ, and reaching its fullness on the day of resurrection. By preparing to bring your child to be baptized you are taking an important step in raising your child in the Christian faith. Baptism is not just plain water, but it is the water included in God's command and combined with God's Word.

Concordia's pastoral staff performs baptisms for both members and non-members. Non-members are asked to meet with a pastor before the baptism takes place.

For more information or to schedule a baptism, contact Doris Bendele at or by calling 210.479.1477 ext. 1030.
