Step 2 – Baptism by Immersion

 

Screen-shot-2012-03-01-at-10.08.37-AMYour NEXT STEP after asking God to have a relationship with you (through what Jesus did for you and I on the cross and having faith this is the truth) is to get baptized.

 

 

 

 

Three biblical reasons why to get baptized:

1) OBEDIENCE – being baptized is a first step of obedience for a Christian and should be done as soon as possible. Even Christ himself was baptized as our model in Matthew 3:13. Will you follow Christ in obedience and be baptized?

2) PUBLICLY – Baptism is a public symbol of our private faith and is to be conducted in front of the entire church as a public expression. As a matter of fact, Jesus said very strongly in Matthew 10:32, “If anyone acknowledges me publicly here on earth, I will openly acknowledge that person before my Father in heaven.” Will you acknowledge Christ publicly?

3) QUICKLY – While baptism does not bring salvation (only faith in Christ does), it should be done as quickly as possible after salvation. Every example in the New Testament is one of haste. There is always a reason to wait and always another excuse for delay but let me encourage you to be like the Ethiopian follower in Acts 9 who saw a body of water right after his conversation and said “Look! There’s some water! Why can’t I be baptized?” (Acts 9:36) Why wait?
