Baptism Invitations For Christian Baptism

Baptism invitations are illustrative of the Christian’s initiation into the Christian life. The invitations feature scenes from the New Testament, religious symbols like angels, doves, birds, and other animals, and the beautiful picture of Jesus Christ.

Baptism invitations should be sent out to everyone at your church and every single one of your classmates, friends, colleagues, co-workers, employers, relatives, and family members. Make sure that each person knows what baptism is and what it means to you. Let fortuitous circumstances befall you when you give a few sentences explaining what baptism means to you in the card, envelope, or invitation itself. A few lines like this should suffice: “Welcome to the joyous occasion of the baptism of my spirit when I will officially enter the Kingdom of God spiritually”. The invited guests will have an immediate rush of reverence, a sense of awe, a jolt of appreciation, a soothing feeling of wonder, and many more cool feelings if they read through it.

Christian baptism is a sacred art that’s stipulated well enough in the New Testament. It’s mentioned about 100 times, and that’s a lot. God shows that it has special emphasis for everyone.

But what is Christian baptism?

Christian baptism is the process whereby someone enters into a pool of water, the pastor chants a few words over his or her head, and the person re-emerges from the water a changed man. It’s not really that simple, a lot of it is purely metaphorical and some ritualistic, but the basic message that the new life in Christ is put on definitely calls for invitations to be sent out. This event is no less transforming than your 15th birthday if you’re Latino, graduation, and 50th birthday. This transforming experience ultimately requires that all your friends be there to witness and oversee it.

Are invitations expensive? Won’t it cost a lot? Is it really worth all the effort?

Unless you want your baptism to be a no-show event, you should get invitations. Baptism invitations are not expensive, only costing about $20 to $30 for 100 or 200 at some bulk invitation stores online. It won’t cost a lot because it’s worth the price. The priceless value is definitely worth it. Your friends won’t be mad either because they don’t have to get in the water with you and get wet. Friends can merely look on from a safe distance while the pastor performs the ritual in the lake or river or whatever you’re doing it in.
