What is Baptism and why do we do it?

 

The Bible teaches that baptism is done after a person has confessed that they believe that Jesus is the Son of God, and that He came and died for their sins.

Baptism doesn’t make someone go to heaven, nor does it make them a Christian. They do it because they have already took the step in their life to accept Jesus into their heart, and they do it as a public testimony. It is a proclamation of faith in Christ, a statement of submission to Him, and an identification with His death, burial, and resurrection. It is an outward act of an inward change.
