Holy Baptism is the sacrament by which we are adopted as God's children and made members of Christ's Body, the Church. In the Episcopal Church both adults and children may be baptized. In Baptism we receive the gift of the Holy Spirit and begin our journey of following Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. The outward and visible sign in Baptism is water, in which the person is baptized in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. The inward and spiritual grace in Baptism is union with Christ in his death and resurrection, birth into God's family the Church, forgiveness of sins, and new life in the Holy Spirit.
At Incarnation we celebrate Baptism regularly several times a year: at Easter, Pentecost, All Saints' Sunday (in November), and the Feast of the Baptism of Christ (in January). In cases of necessity Baptisms can also be celebrated at other times.
