a public declaration of an inward reality
Baptism is when you tell the world “I belong to Jesus.” It’s an outward expression of an inward transformation that has already taken place through personal faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. People who follow Jesus choose to be baptized because Jesus commanded it. It’s like a wedding ring—a symbol that represents a commitment you’ve made.
