"Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to be baptized by John". Matthew 3:13
Christ prescribed this ordinance which confirms faith in Him. Baptism must be preceded by a confession of faith in Christ, and repentance of sins. It is an act of obedience symbolizing the new believer’s faith in a crucified, buried and risen Saviour, the believer's death to sin, the burial of the old life (immersion in water) and the resurrection to walk in the newness of life in Christ Jesus:
Repent - literally, to turn and go the other direction; specifically, to decide not to continue activities God forbids and to obey what He commands.
Converted - changed from being a sinner to a life of obedience to God (being a Christian).
Born again - the spiritual process of becoming a new person by belief in Christ. It involves repenting of sin and being forgiven of sin; and being transformed or changed so our naturally sinful nature become more like Jesus’s Godly nature.
Baptism – a public statement of your faith. Our great example of total immersion baptism is Jesus’ own baptism by John the Baptist. Baptismal classes are highly recommended and are available upon request.
