What is Confirmation In The Bible?

Christian confirmation, as it is practiced today, is a ceremony and rite of passage where someone strengthens their relationship with God and fully becomes an active member of Christianity. The person must first be baptized, and old enough to understand their commitment, in order to receive the sacrament and gift of the Holy Spirit. The sacrament is delivered by a bishop and typically includes readings of bible passages.
