WHAT IS BAPTISM?
In many ways, baptism is where the Christian life begins. It is where our relationship to Christ and his church is formally acknowledged. It the sign and seal of initiation into the visible family of God, whether as an adult convert or as a child of believing parents. It is the sign and seal of God’s saving promises to us — to claim us as his own, to unite us to his Son, to wash away our sins, and to give us the gift of the Holy Spirit. As a sign, baptism visibly symbolises these promises, and as a seal, baptism reassures us that God will keep his promises.
