Baptism is the sacrament by which we are embraced by God as members of Christ's Body. Baptism is a time of joy and may occur at any age.
The most significant step you can take on the road to a deeper life in Christ is to be baptized with water in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
By Baptism, we are joined to Christ in his death and resurrection and made full members of his body. At baptism, we make promises about how we will live our lives as followers of Jesus. God promises us forgiveness of our sins and new life in the Holy Spirit, and welcomes us into full communion with Christ.
