Find a Minister to Perform a Baptism

Baptism is perhaps the most sacred ceremony in all of Christianity, and in a handful of other world religions. The immersion or application of water during the baptism ceremony symbolizes a rebirth into the Kingdom of Christ, and for many marks the beginning of a lifelong religious journey. Baptisms are typically performed by priests or ministers, which is probably why you are here! By utilizing the search tools on this page, you will be able to find an ordained minister to perform a baptism near you. These legally ordained ministers are fully prepared and excited to help you or your loved ones participate in this special tradition by presiding over the sacred baptismal ceremony. To begin, enter and select your search parameters in the fields below – this will allow you to filter the display of ministers based on their location, their billing rates, and their beliefs so you can confirm that you and your minister have aligning religious thoughts.


You have not yet become ordained. Once you are ordained, you will be legally recognized as a minister nearly everywhere, and you'll be able to perform any ceremony that requires a minister or priest including weddings, funerals, or baptisms. The process is free and only takes a few minutes.
