What Is Baptism?
Water baptism is a visual and symbolic demonstration of a person’s belief in and union with Christ. As the scriptures tell us, baptism is a way we identify with Christ in the likeness of His death and resurrection. It signifies that we have turned from our former way of living life on our own, away from God, and have decided to walk in a new life with Christ as a new creation.
As recorded in Matthew 28:19, Jesus tells us “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit”
