Confirmation

 
 

Principles

Confirmation, which is now called “Affirmation of Baptism”, is a time for young people to declare their promise to live among God’s people, hear God’s word, share the Lord’s Supper, proclaim the good news of God through word and deed, serve by following the example of Jesus and strive for justice and peace on Earth.
