"Baptism Candle with Wax Motif “Cross w/ Fish &Waves Silver"

A colourful Baptism candle with some of the important symbols of Baptism such as the Cross, fish and waves. As a small gift for Baptism this candle makes for a fantastic gesture.

The Baptism candle is a symbol of the Christian faith and is supposed to accompany the person being baptised and illuminate their future path to God. Traditionally it’s lit on an Easter light at the alter and its light is carried by the God parent. 

The light is the second important symbol during the Baptism. It reminds us that Jesus told us “I am the light of the world” (John 8:12). For the baptised during the Church service and later on anniversaries of Baptism a personalised candle can be lit.

The Ichthys symbol comes from Greek and means “fish“. Early Christian used the fish during the times of persecution as a secret symbol of recognition. To be sure if present, unknown people were followers of Jesus or not they drew an arch in the sand. If the other person then completed the symbol with another arch to make the fish they revealed that they too were a Christian.

The fish wasn’t chosen at random, but rather has two meanings. Firstly, it refers Mark 1:17 where Jesus called upon Simon (who was later named Peter) and his brother Andrew while they were fishing in the Sea of Galilee to go with him and become fishers of men. As well as this, a type of profession of faith can be derived from the beginning letters of the Greek word:

I - Jesus

Ch - Christ [the "anointed", in Hebrew "Maschiach" (the Messiah)]

Th – God‘s

Y – Son  

S – Saviour
