Confirmation

How do I get confirmed?

Confirmation is the confirming of the baptismal promises made by your parent/s on your behalf.  You confirm those promises by taking them for yourself.  You were baptised as a child in the understanding that you would be brought up as a faithful follower of Jesus Christ, and in the expectation that when you were of age you would take upon yourself the faith your parent/s expressed.  If you haven’t been baptised as a child, please speak to me so that we can arrange this. The confirmation ceremony is the public declaration that you understand what Christianity is all about, that you believe it and have decided to follow Jesus as the King of your life and as your Saviour.  There is nothing supernatural about the ceremony.  It doesn’t make you into a Christian, or get you into heaven.  The ceremony is about young Christian people telling their church that they have decided to be followers of Jesus Christ.
