Baptism is the Church’s way of celebrating and enacting the embrace of God who first loved us from the moment of our conception. The water of Baptism represents the washing away of life without God, cleansing, growth, and new life. The Baptismal candle symbolizes the “passing of the torch” of Christian commitment to those being baptized, while the white garment represents the Church’s belief that Baptism sets us free from Original Sin.
