Baptism is the outward act that represents the inward change that occurs when you accept Jesus Christ as your Savior.  It confirms your commitment to Christ and is one of the first steps of discipleship. 

 

Baptism also symbolizes the death of our old lives, left beneath the water, and the beginning of our new lives as we rise, cleansed by the blood of Jesus, new and ready to fulfill the purpose God has for our lives in Him.
