The Sacrament of Baptism
Holy Baptism is the primary sacrament, the act by which God accepts a person as His reborn child and sends to that child the Holy Spirit. As the Creed teaches, there is but one Baptism, whether of an infant or an adult, and that Baptism determines membership in the Church. The Ecumenical Catholic Church recognizes as valid the baptism of any other Christian denomination provided such baptism was performed with water in the Name of the Triune God. A baptized person never shall knowingly be rebaptized, for to do so would be an act of unfaith and denial of God's infinite Grace.
