About Baptism

What is baptism?

It’s an outward expression of an inward change and that change is a personal decision to accept Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior.
When you are baptized, you are in fact visually preaching the gospel. As you stand in the water waiting to be baptized, you symbolize Jesus dying on the cross. As you are lowered into the water, you symbolize Jesus buried in the tomb. As you are raised from the water, you symbolize Jesus rising from the dead. Just like Jesus, this is a picture of us dying to sin and being covered with God’s forgiveness and being raised to follow Jesus for life. Romans 6:4
Baptism is also a symbol like a wedding ring symbolizes that I am married and committed to my spouse, it doesn’t make me married, being baptized doesn’t save me but shows others that I have made a commitment to Jesus.

why a believer should be baptized

Baptism shows others that we belong to Jesus and we are proud of it.
It is a sign of obedience and the last command Jesus gave to his disciples which was to go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Matthew 28:19-20
Why immersion? Well, because that is how Jesus was baptized. Matthew 3:13-17
The Greek word for baptism is baptizo which means to immerse or to submerge.

Who can be baptized?

Anyone who has made a personal decision to accept Jesus their Lord and
Savior
The bible is clear that baptism should be after a believer is old enough to
understand and explain their faith.
