Baptism is the FIRST of the 3 Sacraments of Initiation into the Catholic Christian faith... the other two are Confirmation and Eucharist. All three create the foundation of every Christian life.
We believe that the faithful are born anew by Baptism. Through Baptism, we become brothers and sisters of Jesus Christ - members of the Body of Christ. In other words, we become Christians!
