What Does the Baptism Candle Symbolize?

Answer

Fire, especially in the form of a candle flame, represents both the Holy Spirit and light. The sources of these symbols derive from the Bible; for example from the tongues of fire that symbolized the Holy Spirit at Pentecost and from Jesus' description of his followers as the light of the world; or God is a consuming fire found in Hebrews 12. Light, like water, is essential for life and hence the candle.
