Jenny’s LDS Baptism Program Template

UPDATED!!!! I have just created two versions of this baptism program that are editable. Yes, all you have to do is fill in the blanks or change the text that’s highlighted, and your baptism program is done! The “generic” editable file is meant for adults or others who are being baptized. The “primarychild” editable PDF is for children who are being baptized, and includes a field for the Primary Welcome. Please comment below if you see any problems with these files.


I (Jenny Smith) created this for my son’s baptism, and I will say it turned out beautifully. We had it printed on a color printer at Staples — wow. The detail of Christ’s baptism really turned out nicely. This template was made for a Child of Record baptism (so includes participants’ relationship to the child), but could easily be altered for any baptism. As a side note, these songs are just what we picked out and the lyrics are included just so that you can see what it looks like. So what I’m trying to say is “Baptism” and “I am a Child of God” aren’t required songs. We had several non-member family and friends attending the baptism, and to give them a chance to see that Mormons aren’t brainwashed cultists, we held a meal afterward to let everyone mingle. But again, a meal afterward is by no means required, expected, or even traditional.
