Water Baptism

What Is Water Baptism?

Water baptism is a significant milestone in the Christian faith that involves immersing a person in water as a symbol of their commitment to Jesus Christ.

Baptism is an outward expression of an inward change, and it represents a person's decision to follow Christ, the washing away of sin, and the identification of Jesus death, burial and resurrection.

Does Water Baptism Save US?

While water baptism itself does not save a person, it’s an important part of the Christian faith and an act of obedience to God’s Word. Jesus said in Matthew 28:19, “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.”

Who Can Be Baptized?

According to the Bible, anyone who has put their faith in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior can be baptized. In other words, anyone who has repented of their sins and believes in Jesus Christ as the Son of God can be baptized as a public expression of their faith.

In Acts 2:38-39, Peter says, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off—for all whom the Lord our God will call

This passage shows that baptism is not limited to a certain age group or gender but is available to all who repent and believe in Jesus Christ, including children. However, it’s important to note that baptism should only be done after a person has made a personal decision to follow Christ and is able to understand the significance of the act.
