***Step 2: Be baptized*** (birth of the water)

 

Why are we baptized?

 

1.    For the remission (washing away of sins)

·         --Act 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins…”

·         --Acts 22:16 ‘And now why are you waiting? Arise and be baptized, and wash away your sins, calling on the name of the Lord.’

 

2.    To put on Christ

·         --Galatians 3:26-27 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.

4.    To be buried with Christ

Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in the newness of life.

2.    Full Immersion
