Baptism is a public declaration

Baptism is a public declaration a person makes to identify with Jesus Christ’s death, burial and resurrection. The Bible tells us in Romans 6:3-4: “Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptised into Christ Jesus were baptised into His death? Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.”

Jesus commanded believers to get baptised

While baptism doesn’t grant you salvation – that comes by faith alone (see Ephesians 2:8-9) – Jesus commanded believers to get baptised. In Matthew 28:19, He says: Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
