Baptism is an act that shows others publicly your decision to follow Jesus. It is the first action of obedience that believers are commanded to do.
What it means.
Being baptized literally means to be immersed. First of all, it's how Jesus did it:
It also signifies dying to our sins, being buried and coming back to life anew in Christ.
Why we do it.
Baptism is NOT a part of salvation. It is simply obeying God by following Jesus in what He did. It represents dying to our sins and raising to a new life in Christ.
