By Baptism, we become members of the Church, the body of Christ.
Jesus, by commanding his disciples to baptize all nations, established the means by which people would die to sin – Original and actual – and begin to live a new life with God.
In Baptism, the Holy Spirit moves us to answer Christ’s call to holiness. In Baptism, we are asked to walk by the light of Christ and to trust in his wisdom. We are invited to submit our hearts to Christ with ever deeper love.
For more information regarding Baptism, please contact your parish. (A listing of the parishes of the Archdiocese of Mobile can be found here.)
