The Catechism teaches:
“The fruit of Baptism, or baptismal grace, is a rich reality that includes forgiveness of original sin and all personal sins, birth into the new life by which man becomes an adoptive son of the Father, a member of Christ and a temple of the Holy Spirit. By this very fact the person baptized is incorporated into the Church, the Body of Christ, and made a sharer in the priesthood of Christ” (CCC 1279).

Whether it is received by an infant, an older child, or an adult, this sacrament is the one which initiates a person into the life of the Church and is a gateway to the other sacraments.  Baptism is the sacrament by which a person is first identified as a Christian.  It opens the person to the fullness of the life of grace mediated by the Church.
