Baptism is, within the apostolic tradition, the means by which one affirms their decision to follow in the way of Christ.

For those not of age to make their own promises, parents, along with Godparents or sponsors, may offer them on their behalf with the understanding that a child will be brought up within the life of the Church.

Wherever possible a bishop administers baptism.

Immersed in water or, if this is impractical, by the pouring over of the water, those offering themselves in baptism are welcomed into a clean and renewed life with God.
