Formulary Friday: Baptism video

Posted by Lee Gatiss, 30 Jan 2015

Lee Gatiss explores what baptism is all about, for both adults and children, in this video.

This 34 minute video looks at the doctrine of baptism, and how this Christian sacrament is like a wedding, a funeral, a birthday, and a bath. Dr Gatiss looks at both the inward spiritual aspect of baptism and the outward physical sign, including questions about whether baptism is merely symbolic and whether infants should be baptised or not.

There is a handout for the talk here.

The video is downloadable, so that it may be used by congregations and small groups even in places without an internet connection, and does not need to be “streamed” in such circumstances.

Revd Dr Lee Gatiss is the Director of Church Society
