Sharing your faith in Jesus publicly.
“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
— Jesus in Matthew 28:19-20 (NASB)
What is baptism ?
Whenever anyone believes in Jesus as Savior, the Holy Spirit imparts life and cleansing to that person’s spirit making him or her a child of God forever (Titus 3:5). Jesus likened this work of the Spirit to the wind blowing (John 3:8). The wind is invisible, and yet you can hear and sense it around you. In the same way, when anyone believes in Jesus as Savior, that Christian’s new birth is invisible, yet very real. Baptism makes this invisible cleansing and impartation of life visible to other people. When a Christian is baptized, he or she is saying, “I have believed in Jesus as my Savior and the Spirit has given me a new life as a child of God!”
