Baptism is an ancient ceremony found in many religious, worldwide. Its existence may be traced back to the so-called Mystery Religions of Ancient Egypt and Greece
in which the candidate, or Initiate, was given a new spiritual name to be used exclusively in the worship of the god or goddess. For Christians, its origin is found in the practices of John the Baptist (Matt. 3:5-6). At the Temple of the Living God, Baptism is the spiritual rite in which a newborn infant or child is welcomed into both the Universal Body of God and the body of our church family.
