Baptism is our opportunity to let others see and know the change that has happened within us. It is the outward expression of what Jesus has done for us inwardly. It reminds us that Jesus died on the cross and rose from the grave for each of us so that we may die to our sin and be made alive in Him. When we are immersed, we are reminded of the death of Jesus, and as we arise from the water we are called to remember His victory over the grave; that He reigns victoriously today. Jesus called all who believe in Him and the Good News of His Gospel to receive baptism as a sign that we belong to Him.
