What is [the meaning of] Baptism?

It’s a symbol of Jesus’ burial and resurrection. 

“Christ died for our sins . . . he was buried . . . And he rose again.”—1 Corinthians 15:3, 4

“For when you were baptized, you were buried with Christ, and in baptism you were also raised with Christ.”—Colossians 2:12

It’s a symbol of your new life as a Christian. 

“Anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!”—2 Corinthians 5:17 

“By our baptism, then, we were buried with him and shared his death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from death . . . we also might live a new life.”—Romans 6:4

Why Should I Be Baptized?

Jesus was baptized, so by getting baptized, we’re following his example. 

‘At that time Jesus came from Nazareth . . . and was baptized by John in the Jordan [River]. Mark 1:9  

Jesus commanded that his followers be baptized. 

“[Jesus said,] ‘Go then, to all peoples everywhere and make them my disciples, baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and teach them to obey everything I have commanded you.‘” Matthew 28:19-20 

Baptism is your public declaration of faith in Jesus. 

“. . . many of the Corinthians who heard [him] believed and were baptized.Acts 18:8 

Getting baptized shows that you know Jesus on a personal level. 

We know that we have come to know Him, if we keep His commandments.1 John 2:3

Who Should Be Baptized?

Every person who has made the decision to believe in Christ should be baptized. 

“Those who accepted his message were baptized.”Acts 2:41 

“But when they believed Philip as he preached good news . . . and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women.”—Acts 8:12 

“Simon himself believed and was baptized . . .”Acts 8:13  

The one requirement for baptism is belief in Jesus! This is why we don’t baptize children until they’re old enough to understand and believe for themselves.
