The Sacrament of Baptism
Baptism is not water only, but it is water used together with God’s word and by God’s command. In Baptism God forgives sin, delivers from death and the devil, and gives everlasting salvation to all who believe what God has promised. Water by itself is only water, but with the Word of God it is life-giving water which by grace gives the new birth through the Holy Spirit. At Our Savior’s our preparation for Holy Baptism is also the first of the Faith Stepping Stones. Here we talk about the spiritual dimensions of raising a child in faith and in the Family of God. Although this class is offered a number of times per year, parents are invited to participate during the pregnancy or any time after baby is born.
