A message about baptism

From the April 2011 issue of The Christian Science Journal


As Mother Church employees have traveled the world meeting with members, one interesting thing they’ve learned is that in some countries people may be asked to provide evidence of baptism in order to participate in certain public activities, such as voting or school attendance. Since baptism has an important and specific meaning in the teachings of Christian Science, it caused us to think about what such a statement might look like.
