There are lots of signs to remind us of Jesus
Within the service there are lots of signs which remind us of Jesus. There is the sign of the cross made on the head of the person being baptized which reminds us of how Jesus died on a cross to save us from our sins. Our baptism is with water through which we believe we are forgiven our sins and are raised to new life, a reminder that Jesus rose again. The person baptized will also be given a lighted candle, to show us that the light of Christ conquers the darkness of evil. All those who are baptized walk in his light for the rest of their lives. As you think of those to be baptized, you may like to think of all those in your family throughout the ages who have been baptized and known the love of Jesus in their lives.
