Baptism is an important step for people in their Christian lives, illustrating a believer’s identification with Christ’s death, burial and resurrection. It’s a public declaration of their faith, discipleship and commitment to Jesus. It is also a time of great celebration for the church.
Jesus Himself was baptised, and the Bible tells us in Matthew 3:16-17 NIV:
16 As soon as Jesus was baptised, He went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on Him. 17 And a voice from heaven said, “This is My Son, whom I love; with Him I am well pleased.”
