WHY IS WATER BAPTISM IMPORTANT?
Jesus commanded us to be baptized and for us to go and baptize others (Matthew 28:19-20). Additionally, the scriptures teach that it is normal and customary for someone who believes in Christ as their Lord and Savior to be baptized (Mark 16:16).
Baptism is important because it also portrays the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Romans 6:3-6 says, “Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptized in Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were therefore buried with Him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.”
Baptism in water by full immersion is a public statement of our faith in Jesus Christ. As one who has been born again, forgiven by Jesus Christ, it is our joy to tell others of the great things that God has done in our life..
