Baptism

Baptism cleanses people from original sin and from all personal sins, giving them rebirth as children of God, incorporates them into the Church, sanctifies them with the gifts of the Holy Spirit, and, impressing on their souls an indelible character, initiates them in Christ’s priestly, prophetic, and kingly roles.  By accepting Baptism, people affirm their faith and are initiated and welcomed into the community of faith.
