The Bible teaches that baptism is the immersion in water of a repentant believer. In the New Testament church, every believer was commanded to be baptized (Acts 2:38). Baptism symbolizes the following:
The New Birth. John 3:5
Circumcision of the Heart. Colossians 2:11-12
The Death, Burial and Resurrection of Christ. Romans 6:3-5
Salvation. 1 Peter 3:21
Immersion in water is the only physical act that pictures this so beautifully and accurately. Baptism is not an option for the true believer. It is an acid test of our true faith in the Lord JESUS CHRIST. (Matthew 28:18-20; John 14:15)
