Baptism is a meaningful and symbolic action for Christians. The act of dunking in the water symbolizes the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus, which is the powerful act that allows salvation from sin and death.
Keep the meaning of the occasion in mind when you write your baptism card message. Instead of just "Congratulations," you can acknowledge and encourage the Christian making his or her faith public. Here are some examples of what you can write in a baptism message.
We were ecstatic to see you baptized in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
You have demonstrated your faith through baptism. We are happy to congratulate you.
Jesus has been honored by your act of faith. And we are excited to see you be baptized in His name.
The symbolism of the death, burial, and resurrection and your public profession of faith can be a catalyst to the Christian life that you want to live! Congratulations!
We’re so proud of the young Christian man/woman you have become, and your baptism marks a huge step and commitment that we are happy to see you make.
Congratulations on your baptism! What a glorious reason to celebrate!
Jesus was baptized knowing that one day he would have to live out the redemptive miracle that baptism represents despite the pain and suffering he would endure. Remember this as you go on in the future and strive to be one of the redeemed.
Baptisms are the official celebrations of birth into the family of Christ. It only makes sense that you get your first birthday card at the party, even if you were born again a while ago. We are celebrating your new life with Him.
You are showing what the priorities of your life are. Congratulations on taking the step of baptism.
If Jesus thought baptism was important enough that he himself should be baptized, then what you do today will be one of the most important things you do in your life.
Traditions like baptism are only worth as much as they symbolize and only if you believe and understand what you are doing. Today’s public display was extremely valuable.
“Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved” Mark 16:16 (Bible verse for Baptism Card Message)
You were raised from the water just as Christ was raised from the dead!
Now that you are baptized, I am confident you will continue to grow in faith and hope. Be blessed!
Baptism sets you apart as one who is publicly professing your faith.
