Baptism is the gateway to eternal life and to the other sacraments. Baptism in the economy of salvation and the symbolism of water in the OT. Circumcision as the foreshadow of baptism. Jesus' baptism. Baptism is the rebirth of water and the Spirit which truly saves. The baptized is buried with Christ. The celebration of the sacrament. Who can receive baptism? Should infants be baptized? Who can baptize? The necessity of baptism for salvation. The grace and effects of baptism.
