Question: What is the importance of baptism?
|Response: Baptism brings us into union with Christ, with each other, and with the Church in every time and place. Through this sign and seal of our common discipleship, our equality in Christ is made manifest . We affirm that there is one baptism into Christ, celebrated as our basic bond of unity in the many communions that make up the Body of Christ. The power of the Spirit in baptism does not depend upon the mode by which water is administered, the age or psychological disposition of the baptized person, or the character of the minister. It is Gods grace that makes the sacrament whole. For a more detailed report, read "By Water and the Spirit" by clicking on the image above.|
