WHAT IS BAPTISM 

Baptism is a public declaration of our faith and commitment to Jesus Christ.
Peter replied, "Each of you must repent of your sins, turn to God, and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ to show that you have received forgiveness for your sins. Then you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit." Acts 2:38

Baptism is an outward symbol of our inward commitment to follow Christ.
God saved you by His grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it. Ephesians 2:8-9

Baptism symbolizes Christ’s burial and resurrection.
For you were buried with Christ when you were baptized. And with Him you were raised to new life because you trusted the mighty power of God, who raised Christ from the dead. Colossians 2:12

Baptism symbolizes my new life as a Christ-follower.
For we died and were buried with Christ by baptism. And just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious power of the Father, now we also may live new lives. Romans 6:4

Jesus Himself was baptized and commanded us to do the same.
Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Matthew 28:19
