Living Out Our Baptism

To live out our baptism is to let the community of faith nurture us so that we may discover the new opportunities for service where individual gifts and graces are discerned developed and used. All baptized Christians are commissioned or anointed to be in ministry.

Living out our baptism involves living out our calling to the priesthood of all believers. In the baptismal covenant we say "we" to our new brothers and sisters in Christ. Through baptism you are incorporated by the Holy Spirit into God's new creation and made to share in Christ's royal priesthood.

Living out our baptism involves us not only in our own spiritual growth but also in ministry to the needs of others. Our baptism calls us to confront the spiritual forces of wickedness and the evil powers of this world.
