WHAT IS BAPTISM ALL ABOUT?
A simple definition of baptism is, “An outward sign of an inward change.“
There are many verses in the Bible that talk about baptism.
Peter replied, “Each of you must repent of your sins and turn to God, and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. Then you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. This promise is to you, to your children, and to those far away – all who have been called by the Lord our God.”
You are publicly identifying with the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus.
You have turned from your old life of sin and God has given you new life in Jesus.
You’re “going public” with your relationship with Jesus.
