Baptism

Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit, and the door which gives access to the other sacraments. Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as sons of God; we become members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission.”

As the first of the seven Sacraments, and the way by which to receive the other Sacraments, Baptism unites us to Christ, who died for us and repaired our relationship with God the Father. The Sacrament of Baptism signifies our new life in Christ as the believer receives not only remission of original and personal sin but also the various fruits, gifts, and virtues necessary to live a holy life. Through the waters of Baptism, the believer is incorporated into the Body of Christ, the Church.
