What is Baptism?
Baptism is the outward sign of an inner gift that you have received by putting your faith in Jesus, as Lord and Saviour.
The water gives a picture of what God has done and is doing in your life because of His unconditional love for you. As you are lowered into the water, it signals being forgiven of your sins, and your decision to turn away from life without God.
As you are raised up out of the water, it celebrates new life in Jesus. You are now a child of God, loved and accepted by Him, filled with His Holy Spirit, knowing that He is with you now and always.
