The Christian people
have many milestones in their walk to becoming a strong Christian.
One ofthose milestones is baptism. Baptism is an outward
symbol of burying one’s old life and being cleansed of sin
and becoming a new person. A person can be baptized when they are a
baby and/or when they are an “adult.” If they are
baptized as a baby, a preacher sprinkles water over the
baby’s head. If a person is baptized as an adult, they are
baptized by immersion. If a person is baptized by immersion, they
are submerged in water, whether it is in a lake, a river or a
baptismal tub. A baptismal tub is a large tub that is kept in a
Church and is used especially for baptisms by immersion. Many
people are raised in the Christian Church and their parents choose
to have them baptized as a baby. Many other people, however, were
not raised in a Christian home and they choose to joina church and be baptized.
