Jesus introduced water baptism in connection with His Great Commission. (Matthew 28:19). He said that new disciples were to be baptized.
Baptism for believers
In the New Testament times, baptism followed repentance and faith. Peter invited his listeners on the day of Pentecost to “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins” (Acts 2:28). Three thousand people responded to the invitation, and “those who accepted his message were baptized” (Acts 2:41)
We follow the same practice of baptism subsequent to conversion to Christ. Those who have repented of sin and put their faith in Jesus for eternal life are encouraged to take this step of obedience.
What Does Baptism Mean?
identifies a person as a disciples of Christ and celebrates the passage from an old life into a new life in Christ. Simply stated, it is an outward sign of an inward change.
