In Baptism, a person is born into and shares in the life of God and the Church. Through Baptism, a person is adopted by the Father as a beloved son or daughter, incorporated into Christ and His body, the Church, and becomes a temple of the Holy Spirit. Baptism, the first Sacrament, forgives both original and committed sins, and opens the way for a person to live and grow in God and the Church through the other Sacraments.
