The Sacrament of Baptism

The Sacrament of Baptism is the first sacrament of initiation and is the way out of the kingdom of death into life. It is the gateway to the Church, and the beginning of a lasting communion with God.

In Baptism we become members of the Body of Christ, the Church. We become sisters and brothers of our Lord, and children of God. We are freed from sin, saved from the darkness of death, and destined from then on for a life forever with God.
