"Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit , and the door which gives access to the other sacraments. Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as sons of God; we become members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission..." -- Catechism of the Catholic Church

For adults entering the church, Baptism is one of three Sacraments that represent the culmination of the Rite of Christian Initiation (RCIA).
