What is Baptism?
Baptism is a sacrament of initiation into the Christian faith. It is also known as “the washing of regeneration and renewal by the Holy Spirit” (Titus). Through baptism, we are cleansed of our sins and made new members of Christ’s Body, the Church. Baptism is necessary for salvation, and so it is a very important sacrament.
Who Can Receive Baptism?
Baptism is open to anyone who has not already been baptized, regardless of age or background. If you have never been baptized, then you are eligible to receive the sacrament. However, baptism is most often received by children or infants. If you are an adult and have never been baptized, then you can still receive the sacrament.
The Steps Involved in Becoming Baptized
If you are interested in being baptized, there are a few steps that you will need to follow. First, you will need to find a church that offers the sacrament. Once you have found a church, you will need to contact the pastor or priest and schedule a time for your baptism. At the time of your baptism, you will be asked to renounce Satan and all his works, and to profess your faith in Jesus Christ. You will then be baptized with water, and the Holy Spirit will enter into you. After you have been baptized, you will be given a white garment to wear as a symbol of your new life in Christ.
Congratulations! You are now a member of the Christian faith. We hope that this blog post has helped to answer any questions you may have had about the sacrament of baptism.
