Baptism is an outward declaration of a decision in your heart to follow Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord of your life. Not only does the Bible command us to be baptized but Jesus himself was baptized. We are simply following his example in doing the same. It is the next step after meeting Jesus personally!
“When all the people were baptized, it came to pass that Jesus also was baptized…” Luke 3:21
“And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord.” Acts 10:38
