Baptism is going public about your faith in Jesus and communicating to the world your heart-felt commitment to following Him. It's the next step after choosing to follow after Jesus. When Christians are baptized, they are submerged under water to identify with the death and burial of Jesus and raised out of the water to identify with His resurrection. We believe that water baptism is a public declaration of three important things: you are a follower of Jesus Christ, you are beginning a changed life in Christ, and you are part of a new family.
