Baptism

Baptism is something that happens once a person has placed their trust in Jesus as the one who saves them from their sins and the one they want to follow as the leader of their life. Baptism links the one being baptized with Jesus Christ in His death, burial and resurrection.

 

Or don't you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life. For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we will certainly also be united with him in a resurrection like his. For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body ruled by sin might be done away with,that we should no longer be slaves to sin—because anyone who has died has been set free from sin.
Romans 6:3-7

 

Baptism is something that happens once someone believes in their heart that God raised Jesus Christ from the dead and they confess with their mouth, “Jesus is Lord.”

 

If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.
Romans 10:9-10

Their faith in Christ and obedience in baptism yields forgiveness for sins and the gift of the Holy Spirit.

 

Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
