The sacrament of Baptism is also called "the washing of regeneration and renewal by the Holy Spirit." It is called this because it indicates and brings about the birth of water and the Spirit, for without these, no one can enter the kingdom of God.
Baptism is necessary for salvation. It affects the forgiveness of sins and of all punishment due to sin, gives glorifying grace, and presents membership in Christ and in the Church. Therefore, people must be baptized to enter the kingdom of God.
The sacrament of Baptism has been agreed upon in the Church since the beginning of the Christian tradition. It has never been rejected by any protest. The only way people could arise doubts would be due to the way and means of administering it, or the way of operating the sacrament.
