Water baptism is the outward expression of a deep inward change.

Water baptism is a sacred and timeless tradition that holds profound significance in both the pages of scripture and the life of the Christian Church. It serves as a tangible expression of faith, a powerful symbol of spiritual rebirth, and a unifying act that transcends denominational boundaries. In this blog post, we will explore the origins of water baptism in scripture and its continued practice in the Church, delving into the rich theological and spiritual dimensions of this vital rite.

When John the Baptist introduced Jesus to the world, he said,

Behold! The Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! (John 1:29) ...this is he who baptizes you with the Holy Spirit. (John 1:33) "I indeed baptize you with water; but One mightier than I is coming, whose sandal strap I am not worthy to loose. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire." (Luke 3:16)

In the Bible’s chapter 10 of Romans, verses 9 -13 it is written, 

“…if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the Scripture says, ‘Whoever believes in Him will not be put to shame.’ For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him. For ‘whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.’”
