Baptism is a visible representation of a person’s identification with the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus.
We encourage and celebrate believer’s baptism by immersionwhich is the immersion of a person in water who has chosen to follow Jesus. When that person goes under the water, it symbolizes the passing away of old life, and when they are raised out of water, it symbolizes the new life found through faith in Jesus
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. For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we will certainly also be united with him in a resurrection like his.
