What is Baptism?

Water baptism is a picture of what Jesus has done for us, illustrating Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection. Going under the water is symbolic of Jesus’ death and burial, while being raised out of the water is symbolic of His resurrection, representing the new life that we now have in Jesus. Paul speaks of this beautiful picture of sharing in Christ’s death and resurrection in Romans 6:3–4.

“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.”

Baptism is not necessary for salvation because salvation does not come by the works of man. Only Jesus saves, by His grace through faith in Him. Baptism is simply the next step in practicing your faith by publicly acknowledging the decision you have made to follow Christ and live for Him!
