The Font is the place where new Christians are baptized. Because baptism marks the entry of a new Christian into the family of the Church, fonts are normally near the church door. In Baptist churches, baptisms take place in a large pool (Baptistry). Baptismal pools have become more common in Roman Catholic and Anglican churches in recent years, as have fonts with running water.
