THE IMPORTANCE OF BAPTISM
WHAT IS BAPTISM?
The word “baptism” as it appears in the Bible means immersion (the process of going under the water followed by coming back up from the water). Baptism doesn’t make you “saved”–only faith in Christ does that. Once you’ve decided to follow Jesus, baptism is the step you take as a statement to let people know about this incredible step in your journey. Like a wedding ring, baptism is a visible reminder of an inward commitment already made in your heart.
