What is Baptism?

Baptism is a new birth into a new life.  We are welcomed into the Church, and become a part of the community. Water is used to baptize, and can be poured on the head, or an adult may be fully submerged during baptism.

Why is Baptism important?

Baptism frees us from sin, makes us a part of a spiritual community, and leads to a greater relationship with God and His Church on Earth. We are freed from all sin through baptism, and become sons and daughters of God.

Who can be Baptized?

Anyone who is not already baptized may seek baptism through the Church. Traditionally, infants are baptized and welcomed into the Church not long after birth.

"Baptism is the source of that new life in Christ from which the entire Christian life springs forth."
