And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” – Matthew 28: 18-20
God loves us and sent His only begotten Son to redeem us. The Sacraments are visible signs of God’s love for us.
In order to build the kingdom of God we must be committed to the King. God freely offers us the gift of salvation and we receive that gift through faith in the saving grace won by Jesus through His death and resurrection.
We enter into this relationship with God first through the sacrament of Baptism, recognized by the pouring of water and the words “I baptize you in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit”, here we are marked with the sign of faith. On our journey through life we seek a deeper communion with God through the celebration of the remaining sacraments. Through the reception of the sacraments God blesses us with the free gift of His grace. We respond to God’s gift of grace as we strive to imitate Christ in our lives. We are strengthened through God’s gift of grace which guides our decisions in life when we are committed to Him in faith. We celebrate these special occasions with the church community and witnesses, as we mark these sacred times in our lives.
We invite you to learn more about the sacraments on these pages.
