An Introduction to ‘Baptized for Life’

Baptized for Life (BFL) is a five-year collaborative initiative between Lifelong Learning at Virginia Theological Seminary and up to twenty-four congregations in six Episcopal dioceses in the continental United States, including five congregations in Arkansas, as well as Camp Mitchell and St. Martin's in Fayetteville. BFL will support participating congregations as they nurture lives of meaning and purpose. BFL will use time-tested elements of the catechumenate – rich worship, regular engagement with scripture, meaningful service, threshold rites, and intentional mentoring – to equip people of all ages to live into their baptismal vocations, truly believing that they are loved and made new in Jesus Christ.
