What is Baptism?
Baptism is an important step of obedience that shows others we have personally trusted Jesus for our salvation. It serves as an outward symbol of our decision to surrender our lives to Jesus Christ, to be Born Again spiritually and to become followers of His ways and teachings.
When Christians are baptized, they are submerged under water to identify with the death and burial of Jesus and raised out of the water to identify with His resurrection. You die to yourself (the death of our fleshly selves) and are born again based on the decision to live for Jesus.
Water baptism is a public declaration of three things:
· You are a follower of Jesus Christ
· You are beginning a changed life in Christ
· You are part of a new Christian family
Baptism is also a symbol of Cleansing by the Spirit of God and the Blood of Jesus. This reflects the forgiveness of our sins, the cleansing of our conscience and purification of our hearts. Baptism is also a symbol of change and willingness to go to the next level in your relationship with Jesus. Baptism serves as a point in life where we take the step of surrendering and giving our lives to Jesus.
