Baptism

The Sacrament of Baptism

Baptism – the foundation of Christian life, the beginning of life with Jesus Christ, the rejection of sin and evil, the door to the Kingdom of God, where we will meet, as members of one loving family.

Baptism is not some magic, by which our child becomes happy and healthy. The godparents, parents, other family members and community, by their Christian example of prayer, must help assure that the gifts that were given during Baptism, would spread, give fruit, and that the person would in fact become happy.

Life, just as Baptism, is a gift from God‘s hands that is irrevocable. Baptism leaves an indelible mark on a person‘s life, and no one can take away the name God‘s child.
