“Christ died for our sins … He was buried … and He rose again.” 1 Corinthians 15:3-4
Baptism illustrates NEW LIFE as a Christian.
“By our baptism then, we were buried with Him and shared His death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead… so also we may live a NEW LIFE.” Romans 6:4
Baptism does not make you a Christian. It is a demonstration that you already believe. It is important to understand that baptism does not “save” you. You are “saved” only by your faith in Jesus.
WHEN IS A GOOD TIME TO GET BAPTIZED?
As soon as you BELIEVE! THERE IS NO REASON TO DELAY! As soon as you have decided to trust Christ with your life, you can and should be baptized. If you’re waiting until you’re perfect, you’ll never be ready.
“Those who believe … were baptized … that day!” Acts 8:35-38
