Baptism isn’t required for salvation - but it is the next step of faith for believers. Baptism is commanded of all believers and is for believers only. Christian baptism by immersion in water is a public identification with Jesus Christ and is symbolic of His death, burial, and resurrection
WHY GET BAPTIZED?
Because you want to follow Christ’s example (Mark 1:9), and Jesus told all believers to do it and set an example by being baptized (Matthew 28:19-20). Baptism is an opportunity to identify ourselves with the Savior and show the world that you are a follower of Christ!
1 John 2:3, Acts 18:8
WHEN SHOULD I BE BAPTIZED?
As soon as you have believed! You shouldn’t put it off!
Acts 2:41, Acts 8:35-38
WHAT IS THE MEANING OF BAPTISM?
It is a symbol of Christ’s death, burial and resurrection and it is a symbol of your new life as a Christian.
1 Corinthians 15:3-4, II Corinthians 5:17
WHO SHOULD GET BAPTIZED?
Every person that believes in Christ. The one and only requirement for baptism is that your believe in Christ.
