Baptised in the blood of Martyrs

It was the Archdeacon's visitation on Monday night.

The liturgy contained a creed with a line about baptism in the blood of our Martyrs. I nearly choked! Surely baptism in with water, in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost. And if the Great Schism occured over the filioque clause, surely changing what we are baptised into must be cause for concern.

Can anyone enlighten me as to the origins of this idea, it's theology, and whether I should evacuate back to a non-conformist church?
