Chapter 15. Baptism: Becoming a Christian • 199


God the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ has freed you from sin,

given you a new birth by water and the Holy Spirit,

and welcomed you into his holy people.

He now anoints you with the chrism of salvation.

As Christ was anointed Priest, Prophet and King,

so may you live always as members of his body,

sharing everlasting life. Amen.

—Prayer for Anointing with Chrism,

Rite of Baptism

You were buried with him [Christ] in baptism,

in which you were also raised with him through

faith in the power of God, who raised him from the dead.

—Col 2:12
