Baptism is a Christian sacrament of admission and adoption, almost invariably with the use of water, into the Christian Church generally. The canonical Gospels report that Jesus was baptized—a historical event to which a high degree of certainty can be assigned. Baptism has been called a holy sacrament and an ordinance of Jesus Christ. In some denominations, baptism is also called christening, but for others the word “christening” is reserved for the baptism of infants. Baptism has also given its name to the Baptist churches and denominations, they being called Baptism as a whole
The Eucharist /ˈjuːkərɪst/ (also called Holy Communion, the Lord’s Supper, and other names) is a Christian rite that is considered a sacrament in most churches. According to the New Testament, It was instituted by Jesus Christ during his Last Supper. Giving his disciples bread and wine during the Passover meal, Jesus commanded his followers to “do this in memory of Me” while referring to the bread as “My Body” and the wine as “My Blood”. Through the Eucharistic celebration Christians remember Christ’s sacrifice of himself on the cross

Reconciliation, in Christian theology, is an element of salvation that refers to the results of atonement.
