Child of God
(A), in the Anglican and Catholic Church, means one who
has been baptised; others consider the phrase to mean one converted by
special grace and adopted into the holy family of God's Church.
“In my baptism, wherein I was made a member of Christ, the child of
God, and an inheritor of the Kingdom of Heaven.” —Church Catechism.
