  1. Dawn -- what does your text say about these questions? Have you tried Googling them?

    Since there are so many denominations, it's difficult to know the exact beliefs of all of them.

    In general, most, if not all Christians baptize children and/or adults. For some groups, such as Methodists, baptism consists of a few drops of water placed on an infant's head. It's symbol that the parents pledge to raise the child in the church. For other groups, such as Catholicism, baptism of infants is necessary so that God will receive the child into heaven if s/he dies. Many other groups immerse people who are at least 12 years of age in a body of water or a baptismal font. It symbolizes the person's rebirth in Christ.

    Only Catholics formally honor spiritual heroes and heroines as saints, although the Mormon's official title is the Church of Latter Day Saints. Roman Catholics are the only group that recognizes the Pope as its spiritual leader.

    This has given you a start. If you post your answers, we'll be glad to comment on them.
