The Bible teaches that we should be baptized in water in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We believe in water baptism because Jesus Himself modeled it for us. In the book of Luke, it says, 'When all the people were baptized, Jesus was baptized too. As He was praying, heaven was opened.' (Luke 3:21)
Baptism is an outward confession of an inward decision.
Baptism is a command. Everyone who confesses Christ should be baptized.
Baptism comes from the word 'baptize,' which means to immerse.
Baptism represents a burial of the old way of life and mindset.
Baptism is not a prerequisite to salvation.
Baptism doesn't get you to heaven; it announces to your friends you are headed to heaven."
