Reply...I submit to Christ as Lord

Do you come to Christ the way the truth and the life?

Reply...I come to Christ in the way the thruth and the life.

 The Pastor anoints the candidate with oil...sealing him/her

[ name ] Christ claims you as his own.

The Pastor says

Do not be ashamed to confess the faith of Christ crucified.

All Fight valiantly as a disciple of Christ against sin , the world and the devil, and remain faithful to Christ to the end of your life.May almighty God deliver you from the powers of darkness, restore in you the image of his glory, and lead you in the light and obedience of Christ.

In Jesus Name... Amen

Prayer over Water
