Just like a wedding ring signifies a marriage, the act of baptism signifies a life change and acceptance of Jesus into your life.
- It illustrates Christ’s burial and resurrection. It says “I am a follower of Jesus, who died and rose again for me.”
“For when you were baptised, you were buried with Christ, and in baptism you were also raised with Christ.” Colossians 2:12
- It illustrates my new life as a Christian. It says “Now I’m a follower of Jesus, I’m determined to live a brand new life!” Baptism doesn’t make you a believer – it shows that you believe.
“When someone becomes a Christian he becomes a brand new person inside. The old life has passed away and a new life has begun!” 2 Corinthians 5:17
Baptism is an outward symbol of the commitment you make in you heart.
