Confirmation is the time in a student’s life when they claim faith for themselves. Through Confirmation, students have the opportunity to explore their faith by asking questions, digging deeper, serving others, and learning more about God and the Church. They will journey alongside committed adult and student mentors and a small group of their peers. At the end of Confirmation, they will be invited to make a public commitment to Christ and become a full member of our church community.
Although confirmation is not a sacrament in The United Methodist Church, it is an important marker along our spiritual journeys. At baptism, we are initiated into the new covenant in Jesus Christ and membership in the Church, Christ’s body in the world. For many, this happens when they are very young. We recognize children are members of their human families, but no one expects them to clean their rooms or empty the dishwasher until much later. In the same way, baptized infants are members of the Church—the family of faith—but are not yet capable of sharing everything involved in membership.
Confirmation is an opportunity to respond to the grace of God available to us, as acknowledged in baptism, and to promise to live as a person of faith. “What God offers us must be accepted in repentance and faith,” This Is Your Baptismal Liturgy states. “Confirmation and reaffirmation are our responses of commitment, profession of faith, and rededication.”
Confirmation includes three aspects:
- God Confirms the divine promise to those who were too young to grasp what God was doing in their baptism
- They respond by professing their own acceptance of the grace they have received & their own faith in Christ
- The Church confirms the commitments they make
