The act of baptism traditionally represents washing away sin so we can become acceptable in God’s sight. But we are already God’s beloved children. The only cleansing needed is to wash away limiting beliefs from our own minds, so that we may become aware of our true Christ nature. Most Unity churches do not baptize adults, but christenings for babies are common. The ritual does not redeem the child from any perceived sin but reminds adults to see the perfect Christ nature inherent in each of us.
