BAPTISM

"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."

Romans 6:4

Why is it important for a believer to be baptized?

First, baptism is an act of loving obedience to the explicit command of our Lord. Christ commanded His disciples to be baptized. Secondly, baptism is a public testimony of one’s faith in Jesus Christ. In the New Testament, when a person received Christ, the person gave public testimony to that fact through baptism. Matthew 28:19-20; Ephesians 1:22-23; Acts 2:41; 9:18; 10:47-48; 16:15, 33

Why was Jesus baptized?

The Scriptures expressly state that Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist. Why did Jesus submit to being baptized by John? Jesus was setting an example for His disciples to follow. Matthew 3:13-17; Mark 1:9-11; Luke 3:21-23; 2 Corinthians 5:21

Who should be baptized?

Baptism is only for those who have made a personal declaration of faith in Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. People who are genuine followers of Christ are to be baptized. This is what is meant by “believer’s baptism.” Acts 2:41; 8:37-38; 10:43-48; John 10:27; 2 Corinthians 7:10
