Article 5. Observance of Sacraments

290. All persons to be baptized shall have the choice of baptism by immersion, pouring or sprinkling. Since children are born into this world with natures inclined to sin, and yet the prevenient grace of God provides for their redemption during the period before reaching the age of accountability, those parents who so choose may testify to their faith in God’s provision by presenting their small children for baptism, while those who prefer to emphasize baptism as a testimony by individual believers to their own act of faith may present their children for dedication.

2016 Wesleyan Discipline:Mark 10:13-16; 2016 Wesleyan Discipline:Acts 2:38-39; 16:15; 18:8. 293. The Lord’s Supper shall be observed in each local Wesleyan church at least once each three months.
