Glossary: reaffirmation of the baptismal convenant

The remembrance of the baptismal experience and the vows taken at that time. The reaffirmation of the baptismal covenant is held during a worship service. It focuses on God's grace extended through baptism and the response of the individual for faithful Christian living. An order for a service for the congregational reaffirmation of the baptismal covenant has been included in The United Methodist Hymnal (1989).
