Baptism, a Sacrament of Initiation, is the first of all Sacraments we receive.  Through Baptism, we are cleansed of the effects of Original Sin, adopted as sons and daughters of God, called to live as His disciples, and promised Resurrection with Christ.  A person may receive the Sacrament once in their lifetime, at any age.
