Baptism in Water (66 KB)
Water Baptism is a symbolic burial and a covenant through which the new Christian convert declares publicly to be "dead" to his former heathen life and to begin a new life in Christ by the grace of God. It is a formal declaration, once for all, that now he is a slave/servant of Jesus Christ, recognizing Him as His Saviour, Lord and Master of his soul. Baptism is an affirmation of faith: "my old life is behind me - I am now a new creation with a new life" 2Co 5:17. It is a declaration of repentance, a sign of deep changes within, up to the point of being buried with Christ.
