Baptism is an initiation ceremony that makes a child a member of the church. Baptism mean that the person has been washed clean of their sins. Water is important as it is used as a symbol in baptism. Many Christians believe that the gift of the Holy Spirit is given at baptism. The Holy Spirit enters the baptized child and gives new life. There are four symbol in Baptism, they are water, oil, candle and white garment. Water is to clean your sins, oil is to sign of the cross, candle is to light the candle in the church and white garment is to put on when you finish baptism.

Mark 1:9-11 talk about Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. The symbol in this passage is the water and the dove. And it is represent the Holy Spirit. “And just as he was coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens torn apart and the Spirit descending like a dove to him.” This is the quote that is linked to the explanation and referenced accurately. The Scripture passage relates to Baptism because this passage is about the baptism of Jesus.

Most Christian traditions encourage baptism. It is seen as important because it allows a person to make a fresh start, sins are wash away, it invites God into a person’s life, it gives strength to resist temptation and more others. If you want to go to baptise, you have to go to a church. This is how they baptise: Water usually poured over their heads 3 times. In Orthodox Churches, the baby is undressed and dipped into the water 3 times. It is done in the 3 times in the name of God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
