Water Baptism

"And now what are you waiting for? Get up, be baptized and wash your sins away, calling on His name." Acts 22:16

Water Baptism

Being baptized in water is symbolic of the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Once we have accepted Jesus as our Lord and Savior, baptism is a way for us to publicly declare our new life in Christ. It is also a step of obedience based on God’s commands and allows us to follow the example of Jesus, who submitted Himself to baptism to "fulfill all righteousness."

Matthew 3:16-17

Matthew 28:18-20

Acts 2:41

Acts 8:12

Romans 6
