Water baptism is something a person does after they commit their life to Christ by confessing Him as Lord and believing that He died on the cross and rose again for them. This is one of the most important steps you will take in your decision to follow Christ. Water baptism is an outward picture of what Jesus did on the inside of you. Jesus died for your sins, was buried, and then was raised from the dead! When you asked Jesus to be your savior, the Bible says your spirit was made brand new. Water baptism is a public profession of your faith. When you are baptized, it represents you accepting Jesus’ sacrifice.
