And the Reason We Call Ourselves Baptists IMAGE: John baptizing Jesus in the Jordan River.
Matthew 3:13-16

 

 

 

 

Most people have heard the words "baptism and baptize" at some point in their life. Unfortunately, there are many people who don't even understand what it means; and if they do, they don't fully understand how it actually changes a person spiritually. When you accept Christ as your Savior, you become what is called a "New Creation in Christ" (2 Corinthians 5:17). The old life is gone; a new life has begun! The Bible contains a lot of scripture that refers to baptism and being baptized. Once you have accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior over your life, you are strongly encouraged to be obedient to God, and become publicly baptized.
