What’s up with baptism?
Before Jesus left he said “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” Just like communion, baptism is a sacrament, a way of remembering what Jesus did and partaking in a physical action as a beautiful act of obedience.
The action of being immersed in the water illustrates dying to ourselves and being buried with Christ. The action of coming out of the water pictures Christ’s resurrection and our new life.
Just like a marriage ceremony, those who choose to be baptized get to stand in front of friends and family and profess their love and commitment, while inviting the community around them to support them in this journey!
