Brothers and sisters in Christ:
Through the Sacrament of Baptism
we are initiated into Christ’s Holy Church
We are incorporated into God’s mighty acts of salvation
and given new birth through water and the Spirit.
All this is God’s gift, offered to us without price.
Through baptism, we are born anew by the free gift of God and
placed within this family called church. As with most families,
we inherit a narrative, in this case God’s mighty acts narrated in
scripture. The narrative we inherit is not only one of the past, but
one into which we are now invited, and the Spirit empowers us to
embody it in our own lives, here and now. Through baptism, we
become part of that unfolding narrative of God’s grace.
