“Going under the water was a burial of your old life; coming up out of it was a resurrection, God raising you from the dead as he did Christ. When you were stuck in your old sin-dead life, you were incapable of responding to God. God brought you alive—right along with Christ! Think of it! All sins forgiven, the slate wiped clean, that old arrest warrant canceled and nailed to Christ’s cross.” Colossians 2:12-14 MSG
Baptism is a symbol. It’s meant to show the world that that you love, trust, and have put your hope in Christ.
There is no bigger event, in our church, than seeing people publicly put their trust in Jesus.
