Baptism signifies a profession of faith, whether it's the baptism of an adult or of a child whose parents are believers. Baptism usually occurs during infancy at First Presbyterian Church, though a person may be baptized at any age. When adults are baptized they make a public profession of faith. The sacrament part of becoming a new member of the church for those who have never been baptized.
The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) believes that persons of other denominations are part of one body of Christian believers; therefore, it recognizes and accepts baptisms by other Christian churches. Presbyterians do not require a person to be entirely immersed in water during baptism.
