Seven Sacraments?


If I get baptized in the name of Jesus Christ and never do the seven sacraments will I still go to hell.


A valid baptism is in the name of the Trinity – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. It is one sacrament and is the gateway to the others.

Since your religious affiliation is listed as Catholic, do you mean that you’ve been baptized but never received any other sacraments? If that’s the case, you are not too old (whatever your age) to receive your other sacraments. Experiencing the intimacy of receiving Christ in the Eucharist or the mercy of God through Reconciliation are something to seek!


Specific to Catholics, what the OP is asking about are the precepts of the Church.

You shall attend Mass on Sundays and holy days of obligation and rest from servile labor
You shall confess your sins at least once a year.
You shall receive the sacrament of the Eucharist at least during the Easter season.
You shall observe the days of fasting and abstinence established by the Church.
You shall help to provide for the needs of the Church.

The last precept is expressed in various ways such as turning toward God and away from sin, trying your best to live according to God’s commands or similar.

These are the absolute minimums for Catholics. It seems clear that confession and the Eucharist are required.




Thank You for the answer God Bless


It depends.


You profile states you are Catholic. That means you did not get baptised in the name of Jesus Christ. Being Catholic means you were baptised in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
