Baptism is an important step of obedience that shows others we have personally trusted Jesus for our salvation. Jesus was baptized when He was on the earth, and we do this to follow His example. When Christians are baptized, they are submerged under water to identify with the death and burial of Jesus and raised out of the water to identify with His resurrection. It is an outward symbol of an inward change. Baptism is a time of celebration and public declaration of new life in Christ. Bring your friends and family with you, so you can celebrate together.
