We believe Jesus himself gave us each of the sacraments and each one flows from his life and ministry. Through each sacrament we are given the grace of God and drawn closer to him. Each sacrament is a visible sign of God’s unconditional love for us. A visible sign where God comes to us, enters into our life and brings us closer to him through his grace.
The Sacrament of Baptism is the sacrament that begins our new life, our life in Christ. Baptism washes away original sin and, in the case of those who have reached the age of reason, particular sin. We are made a member of Christ’s body, the Church. We are filled with sanctifying grace. We receive the theological virtues of faith, hope and charity, as well as the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
