Baptism is a special and joyous occasion. By being baptized, one is adopted into God’s big family. This sacrament marks one’s beginning into a journey of faith and devotion. Children (and adults) flourish in a Christ-centered community that has love at the core of its teachings.
As the Lord himself affirms, Baptism is necessary in order to attain the most beautiful gift of God – eternal life. “No one can enter the Kingdom of God without being born of water and the Spirit.” (John 3:5)
