In Jesus’ own words, being a disciple is something that involves baptism. He led by example by being baptized and He asked His followers to do the same. Before Jesus physically left the earth, He challenged His followers with this mission:

“Go then, to all people everywhere and make them My disciples. Baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and then teach them to obey everything I have commanded you.” – Matthew 28:19-20

What is baptism?

Baptism is the sacrament of initiation into the visible church, or body of people who publicly claim faith in Christ. Baptism also signifies regeneration and remission of sin.

What happens during baptism?

In baptism God promises by grace alone

to forgive our sins;
to adopt us into the Body of Christ, the church;
to send the Holy Spirit daily to renew and cleanse us;
and to resurrect us to eternal life.

Through baptism Christ calls us to new obedience,

to love and trust God completely;
to forsake the evil of the world;
and to live a new and holy life.
