Baptism

WHAT the Catechism Teaches: “Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life… and the door which gives access to the other sacraments. Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as sons of God; we become members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission: Baptism is the sacrament of regeneration through water and in the word” CCC #1213Find more here…
