Church Terms
Provided by: Julia Molitz and Charles Schull

Term Definition
Letter A letter from a former church stating the applicant had been either baptized there or accepted into that congregation as having baptized into the Christian Faith. Note; Not all denominations will accept a letter or statement of faith from certain other denominations. The letter stated that you had accepted Jesus as your personal savior and also accepted the ‘Confession of Faith.”
Experience This is where you inform the applicant states that he or she has been a member of a church of Jesus Christ and served in good faith over a period of time. You could have a witness if required.
Sprinkling Sprinkling of water on the candidate during ritual of baptism three times to each part of the Trinity, God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
Infancy From the Catholic tradition that includes several others that still practice this usually done for a dedication to raise this child in teachings of Christ. Catholic, Lutheran, Episcopal, Methodist, Presbyterian and even our Congregational and perhaps others and most infants that remain in that church go through a confirmation class and are conformed before whole congregation. Infants are sometimes sprinkled and often a cross is traced on forehead with a wet finger of minister.
Pouring Pouring is like sprinkling but more intense and may be compromise to that of emersion. Emersion is three times completely under the water to wash away all sins as John the Baptizer did Jesus in the Jordan. By the way, this form of baptism was practiced by early Church in Rome and Greece and the founts have been unearthed in hidden places of Christian worship in Rome. It is well described in early history of Christian Church and the candidate may be examined for months before being accepted.
Sprinkling Sprinkling of water on the candidate during ritual of baptism three times to each part of the Trinity, God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
