Baptism initiates us into the body of Christ and marks us as Christians. In it we are sealed by the Holy Spirit and marked as Christ’s own forever.
Preparation is necessary for the sacrament of baptism. If the person to be baptized is an infant or young child, their parents, guardians, and godparents (sponsors) must prepare for the joys and obligations of bringing them up as Christians so that when they are old enough to choose for themselves, they will affirm the promises of baptism made on their behalf when they were younger.
If the person is old enough to make their own decision to be baptized, they must prepare for it by understanding the promises they will make in baptism and the privileges and responsibilities that will be theirs as part of the body of Christ.
