Baptism Vs Christening

What is "The Difference Between Baptism and Christening?"

The terms "Baptism" and "Christening" are often used interchangeably but there is a slight difference.

Christening refers to the naming ceremony (it means "give a name to" - this is where the baby receives their Christian name) where as baptism is “a rite of washing with water as a sign of religious purification and consecration.”

Baptism - the ceremony of admitting a person into Christianity.

Christening - the act of baptizing and giving a name to an infant.



After the ceremony, close friends and family usually gather for a reception.

Guests can bring special gifts such as keepsakes, money, and personalized items to honor the baby.
