Water baptism is a public celebration of your personal faith. Just as a wedding ceremony is a declaration of a marriage covenant, water baptism is the outward declaration of the covenant you’ve made with God. Going under the water represents your old life and coming out of the water represents your brand new life with Jesus Christ. This symbolic act declares to the world that you are basing your life on the solid rock of Jesus Christ. When you are in a right relationship with God, you can live every single day with the assurance that He is guiding your life.
