Baptism, the door to life and to the kingdom of God, is the first sacrament of the New Law, which Christ offered to all, that we might have eternal life. Enlightened by the grace of the Holy Spirit, baptism is the sacrament of faith by which we respond to the Gospel of Christ.
In baptism, we are incorporated into the Church and are built up together in the Spirit into a house where God lives, into a holy nation and a royal priesthood. Baptism is a sacramental bond of unity linking all of us who have been baptized and anointed with chrism in the presence of God’s people. Therefore, the rite of baptism is held in highest honor by all Christians. (Christian Initiation, General Instruction 3,4)
