Here is a thought for you: Jesus, who knew no sin, submitted to baptism for repentance. He had nothing to repent, He had never sinned! Yet, many of you, who have accepted Jesus as Savior, haven’t been water baptized! Baptism is your public profession of faith. Jesus humbled himself, was brought low, started from the bottom and worked His way up! I know what you’re thinking, “this is just symbolic.” Yes, it is, but there is so much truth in symbolism. The Bible is full of symbolism, many times used by Jesus in parables to help teach a lesson. This physical act is a beautiful act of humility and obedience. I urge you to submit to water baptism and publicly proclaim your faith in Jesus. As you can see, this is not a denomination thing, it’s Biblical! You’ve heard the words “Buried in the likeness of His death, raised to walk in newness of life.” It’s time for you to follow the steps of Jesus and be like Him through this act of obedience.
Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to John, to be baptized by him. Matthew 3:13
