Meghan Marle joins the Church of England



Link here

The article says that Meghan was "baptised into the Church of England."
While such is a common expression, indicating the minister or group, orthodox Christianity teaches that one is baptized into the Christian faith. Historic Christian Communions such as Roman Catholics, who are very strong on their own denomination, recognize that no second baptism is necessary if Christian baptism was administered outside their group.

I hope the Church of England is not in error on this. It may be, from what is said of Meghan's background, that she was uncertain of whether she had received Christian baptism. But, if she was in the Church of Rome for some years, it is their practice to make sure of Christian baptism before administering Holy Communion.

Whenever it happens, whether as a baby, child or adult, baptism is at the heart of an amazing journey of faith as a follower of Jesus Christ. You are never too old to take this step, and being baptized as an adult is a wonderful experience.

You may have been baptized at a christening when you were a child or in a different Christian tradition, and there are always special ways to renew the promises that were made then in a fresh way as you discover more about what it means to live them out in your life.

Baptism, as a ritual, pre-dates Christianity. Although Christian tradition generally accepts one baptism for the remission of sins, there is no Hard and Fast rule.
