What is Baptism and how can I be Baptised?
Jesus in His final commission commanded the apostles and the church to make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Matt 28:19.
Baptism serves as a public testimony of the believer’s faith in Jesus. It is a form of proclamation. It confirms the believer’s salvation to oneself and affirms it to others.
In the Bible, baptism is for those who believe and have put their faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour. Acts 2:37-41, 8:12, 8:36-39, 16:30-33, 18:8, 19:1-7. It teaches that baptism by immersion is a way to symbolise that a believer has died to an old way and is alive to walk in newness of life. Rom 6:34, Col 2:11-12. There is a strong connection between baptism and our being united with Jesus in His death and resurrection. Just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life. Rom 6:1-11.
Baptism is an act of faith and a testimony that you as a believer have been united with Jesus Christ in His death and resurrection.
