What Is Baptism?

Baptism is a way of declaring to the world “I have decided to follow Jesus.” After a person has asked Jesus to lead them, their next step is baptism. Jesus was baptized and instructs us to do the same. It is the public celebration of the individuals private decision to follow Jesus.

Spiritually speaking, when you go in the water it symbolizes the “old” you, and when you come out of the water, it represents the "new life" you have in Jesus. It doesn’t mean you are perfect now; it is simply a physical expression of God’s power in your life.
