How to Edit Text

Not all Christians see baptism as necessary. Those that do baptize often do it “in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit,” but some baptize in Jesus’ name only. Since you can add text to the Baptism certificate template, feel free to add text such as “in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit” or “in the name of Jesus” according to your belief and customs.
If the certificate is required for a name-giving ceremony or when a person is initiated or purified, then feel free to edit the text accordingly.
Please note that you create the baptism certificate online and you do not need to download any software to create it.
To make an online Godparent certificate, either use this Godmother certificate template or select any of the templates above and edit the text.
The sample Godparent certificate wording that appears on the template is as follows (however it can be edited):
This is to certify that [name]
has been selected as Godparent for [child’s name]
You can use it for any purpose and add any text. For example, create a dedication certificate for Godparents, a christening gift card template or even a certificate of attendance for those who participate in the Christening ceremony. Feel free to use the template for any purpose.
