Baptism Day

Today, water baptism is most readily identified with Christianity, where it symbolizes the cleansing (remission) of sins, and the union of the believer with Christ in His death, burial and resurrection so that he becomes one of Christ's Faithful. Most Christian groups practice some form of literal water-based baptism and agree that it is important, yet strongly disagree with other groups regarding any or all of several aspects of baptism, such as:

* form of the baptism
* recipients of baptism
* meaning/effects of the act of baptism

However, a few Christian groups assert that water-based baptism has been supplanted by the promised baptism of the Holy Spirit, and water baptism was unnecessarily carried over from the early Jewish Christian practice.

Baptism Outfit

Baptismal Outfit
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Baptismal outfit is apparel worn by clergy members and proselytes during a baptismal ceremony.

Roman Catholic tradition

The traditional baptismal outfit for a child being baptised into the Roman Catholic faith is a christening gown (or baptism gown), a long white dress, often with intricate handwork, and maintained in many families as an heirloom.

Protestant tradition

Anglican tradition

The Anglican church grew from its mother the Church of England and includes the Episcopal Church in the United States. It views itself as the 'unbroken continuation of the early apostolic and later medieval' "universal church", rather than as a 'new formation'. Many of the early traditions are therefore the same as the Roman Catholic and the family heirloom long white gown is still used by many families. The modern church allows for much diversity, but usually the clothing is still white for the infant or young child.

Latter-day Saint tradition

Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints dress in white clothing to perform and to undertake baptism. Traditionally, the proselyte wears a white jumpsuit, white socks and white underclothing. The person performing the ordinance wears either a white jumpsuit or white slacks and white shirt. Historically, women and girls wore white dresses with weights sewn in at the hems to prevent the clothing from floating during the ceremony.
