God loves us so much that He wants us to have a full, connected life with Him. The Sacrament of Baptism is the way in which we are brought into fullness with God. At baptism, water is used to symbolize our death to sin and new life in Jesus. Through baptism, we are welcomed into God's family! We become the adopted children of God, followers of Jesus, and temples in which the Holy Spirit dwells. What a great gift to be marked as beloved sons and daughters of God through baptism!
