Baptism is a faith event and celebration where believers decide to turn from their sin and follow Jesus Christ.
Every person who believes in Jesus Christ should be baptized. Believers realize their sin separates them from God. They conclude that Jesus Christ’s death on the cross bridges the gap between them and God. Having decided to trust Jesus alone for their salvation, they follow Him in baptisms as a marker of their new life in Christ. (See: Matthew 28:19-20).
Baptism is an outward sign of an inward change. It illustrates Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection and at the same time represents our new life in Christ. (See: 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; Romans 6:3-4)
