“And all who have been united with Christ in baptism have put on Christ, like putting on new clothes.” (Galatians 3:27)
The practice of baptism is ancient and powerful declaration of one’s intention to Know, Live and Share the Story of Christ. Yet there are so many expressions of it in various Christian churches, that it may seem confusing or intimidating.
And what about those who have grown up in the church and were part of a tradition where children are baptised. So often, as their story of faith becomes more clear, they too can feel confused in terms of how to they are accepted in the church. How does an infant baptism reflect a mature desire to follow Christ as one grows?
