It is a turning point in your relationship with God. You confirm your faith and devote yourself to Christianity.
Chrismation - it's the first anointing of holy oil and it takes place at the same time the infant is baptized. Baptism, Chrismation and Communion are given at the same t…ime.
In reciving the sacrament of confirmation you are being confirmed in the catholic faith, so it is named after plainly what it is.
It's not. I am not exactly sure what confirmation is but I know it is not in the Bible. Baptism and taking the bread and wine are the two rituals/ceremonies Jesus left for… believers. Luk 22:19 Then he took a piece of bread, gave thanks to God, broke it, and gave it to them, saying, "This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in memory of me." Mat 28:19 Go, then, to all peoples everywhere and make them my disciples: baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Confirmation is something introduced by the 'church'. It is of no real importance to a christian. Confirmation is the 'confirming' of the vows made on your behalf when you were baptised as a baby. It is the opportunity of confirming that decision now you are able to speak for yourself. Confirmation was only necessary in the Church because of the practice of baptising babies. Biblically, baptism was of adults making a choice to follow Christ and to make a new start in life - by ritual washing away of the old self and being 'born again'. Many churches (especially the Baptist Church) still practise solely adult baptism by full immersion. However, early in the Church it was believed that baptism was a prerequisite for salvation. In order to be saved baptism was necessary. There is much Biblical evidence for this, but despite this evidence, many people regard rightly that salvation as simply turning to Christ and accepting him as their saviour - whether baptised or not. Because of this idea that baptism was necessary for salvation, many churches eventually began to baptise babies as a 'precaution' in case they should die before being baptised as an adult - a common occurrence in times past when infant mortality was higher than it is today. However, for a baby to be baptised, Godparents were necessary to make the vows of belief in Christ and turning to Christ on behalf of the baby. Therefore confirmation was introduced in order that the baptised infant could reaffirm those vows when he or she was adult enough to make them and know what they actually meant. Therefore confirmation in some churches is of great importance as it is the only time when most Christians can stand up and declare their faith in Jesus Christ in a public way.
The word for the person to be confirmed is a confirmand.
when people get confirmed it is called a blessing, an anoiting,or a cleanse.
It's called an alapa.
not at all
A candidate for confirmation is called a confirmand. Thanks Jose
A person who is about to receive Confirmation is know as a Confirmation candidate. They are usually between the ages of 12 -15.
Confirmation confirms the Holy Spirit within us so that we may betrue Christians and true witnesses to the faith even to the pointof dying for our faith, as well as evangelizi…ng others.
They are usually referred to as 'Confirmation candidates.' Of course, it may depend upon the particular Parish.
