Baptism
Baptism Sacrement

“Holy Baptism is full initiation by water and the Holy Spirit into Christ’s Body the Church. The bond which God establishes in Baptism is indissoluble” (Book of Common Prayer, p. 298). The sacrament of Baptism is a many-dimensioned symbol, including incorporation into Christ; entry into the New Covenant between God and God’s people; union with one another through Christ; participation in Christ’s life, death, and resurrection; the washing away of sin; new birth; a reclothing in Christ; renewal by the Holy Spirit; an experience of salvation from the flood and of exodus from bondage; and liberation into a new humanity in which barriers of division (gender, race, social status) are transcended. Baptism is a sign of the reign of God on earth as in heaven. Baptism is both God’s gift and our response in faith. It marks the beginning of life-long growth through the transforming power of the Holy Spirit.  Christian initiation will take place within the Eucharist “as the chief service on a Sunday or other feast” (BCP, p. 298).
