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 (NLT)
Jesus established water baptism as a commitment opportunity for believers when He gave the Great Commission message in Matthew 28:19 and Mark 16:16. Water baptism is far more than a ritual or religious exercise, it is a public outward declaration that reflects a personal inward faith.
The Bible clearly teaches that baptism is the first step to begin living your life with Jesus. Choosing to be baptised is the initial step of obedience that Jesus asks us to make as we start living our lives with him.
Water baptism associates the believer with the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Water baptism signifies the believer’s death to the old life and their resurrection as a new creation in Christ.
Romans 6:1–8, Colossians 2:12, 2 Corinthians 5:17
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!”
2 Corinthians 5:17
