How do I become an Episcopalian?
Members of St. David's come from a variety of religious backgrounds, and there are several ways one may join the Episcopal Faith:
Through Baptism - The Episcopal Church considers that anyone who has been baptized with water in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, in any Church or denomination, is welcomed as a baptized member of the Episcopal Church. Children, as well as adults, may be baptized.
Through Transfer - Those who have already been baptized may become members by transferring from another church or denomination.
Through Confirmation - Adult baptized members become confirmed members through the Sacrament of Confirmation. Sixteen is usually considered the earliest age for Confirmation, which involves prayers and the laying on of hands by a Bishop.
Through being Received - Those who have been confirmed in another denomination may become a confirmed communicant of the Episcopal Church by Reception.
