PLEASE NOTE: You do not have to be confirmed or received to be able to participate in most of the ministries at Christ The King.
Typically members of United Methodist, Non-denominational, Presbyterian and others protestant congregations are confirmed into the Episcopal Church. Nothing is deficient about these congregations, but the Episcopal Church places a lot of value in the unbroken "family tree" that as traced from the disciples to today in "apostolic succession." For a more detailed explanation of this go to the Wiki page for Apostolic Succession.
If you were not previously a Christian, you can be baptized. If the Bishop is present at your baptism, you do not also need to be confirmed. If you get baptized at Christ the King, then the next time the Bishop visits you would confirm your baptismal vows in the presence of the Bishop.
Each person who is confirmed at Christ The King is listed in the parish records and can take part in every aspect of lay leadership in the church from vestry to lay reading to being convention and convocation delegates and everything in between.
Being Received If you have gone through a period of instruction that led you to full membership in your former Lutheran, Orthodox, or Roman Catholic Church, then the bishop will welcome you as an Episcopalian by receiving you. Anyone who is received is then put into our records and is a full member of the Episcopal Church.
Reaffirmation If you come to Christ The King as an Episcopalian in good standing, but do not feel like you were active enough before, you might consider reaffirming your vows to Christianity and the church. This choice might be for those who have been away from the church for a period of time and want to make a new beginning or for those who sense they are at a new stage in their spiritual life and want to affirm this in ritual. This can also be done when a bishop visits.Read more about the Sacrament of Holy Confirmation
