We believe that something very powerful and spiritual happens when a believer gets water baptized. First, we baptize because we were commanded by Jesus to do so. Second, we believe that it is symbolic as well as testifies to the world that when one goes down in the water and comes up out of the water, one has placed their faith and total trust in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Third, it is symbolic of the reality that when one receives Christ, there is literally a washing off of the old man (sinful nature) and leaving the old man under the water buried. When one comes up out of the water, they are raised a new man. Water Baptism also identifies the new Christian with a local church (body of believers).
Scripture references: Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:38; Colossians 2:12; Ephesians 1:22-23; Romans 6:4-5
