Knowledge about baptism:
The water, which the child get’s poured over it’s head is an important part of the baptism.
The water is a sign of life power. When you get baptised you gain a new life, new life power
according to the Holy bible.
If the child which is to be baptised, have older brother and sisters, they are allowed to help filling the baptismal font. That means that the older brother or sister gets responsible for the child who is to be baptised. The older brother or sister may dry up the for head of the child.

Our Father who art in heaven,
Hallowed by thy name;
Thy kingdom come;
Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven
Give us this day our daily bread,
And forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive those who trespass against us,
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.
For thin is the kingdom
And the power, and the glory, forever and ever.
