Jesus clearly said that the local church exists to make disciples. One of the important steps in the disciple-making process is believer’s baptism, a public proclamation of the amazing work of grace that Jesus has done in a life.
What is Baptism?
It’s a symbol – a picture demonstrated openly and publicly to tell others what God did for you when you became a believer. It’s a backward look – at the resurrection of Jesus Christ as evidence that His death was sufficient for your sins.
It’s a present identification – by obeying Jesus and being baptized, you are identifying yourself as a disciple of Jesus Christ. You are making a public declaration that God is in control of your life and that you want to follow Jesus.
It’s a commitment for the future – this symbol of baptism signifies a genuine spiritual reality in your life. You are telling everyone that you are dead to sin, alive to God, and free to serve and follow Jesus Christ (Romans 6:6-13; 22-23).
