What Is Baptism?
Baptism has been a Christian symbol since the time of Jesus (Matthew 3:1-6). It involves applying water to Christians to symbolize their death to the old way of life (Romans 6:3-4) and their new life God provides (Galatians 3:26-27).
Baptism is a physical demonstration of a person's faith in Jesus Christ as Savior.
What Does It Mean For Me?
Baptism, a sacramental "means of grace," seals one's intention to follow God. The Bible never defines how much water was applied or how. Therefore, we consider immersion, sprinkling, and pouring all to be acceptable methods of baptism.
