When in Baptism we are immersed into the dying and rising of Christ, all our sins are forgiven, original sin as well as all personal sin. We become a new creation in Baptism. Our old selves are put to death and we emerge from the waters of Baptism reborn as sons or daughters of God. Eternal life is our promised inheritance.
Baptism, then, is more than just a rite for Church membership. When we are joined to Christ, we are united to him in such an intimate way that Saint Paul could write, “It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me” (Galatians 2:20). One with Christ, we share his mission as priest prophet, and king.
