In baptism, we thank God for his gift of life and publicly acknowledge his love. In the Anglican Church it is common to baptise young babies and children; this is sometimes known as christening. Baptism is a 'sacrament' (holy ritual to symbolise God's grace) in the Christian tradition that is traced back to Jesus himself being baptized in the river Jordan.
